I can barely put into words how hard the storm hit our area almost 2 weeks ago. 
We were lucky and just had some discomfort (no electricity for 3 days and a very cold house) and ruined fences. It was very unpleasant to be not able to go and check the horses and we also worried that pipes in the cold houses might burst in the frost. BUT we were lucky and horses and houses were fine. Some of the horses were very tired, but will be all good. It is a horrible fact that dozens of horses have died in the area and about hundred are still missing. Our thoughts are with those who are grieving now. 


Below are a few pictures from the storm and the days after...

We had to dig our way into the stable, through the side door. The front door would have taken a little longer to get to.

Without electricity. The house got very cold.

This was how we found many of the fences in Sæból

Ice on the fences. This happened to the electric lines too .. no wonder they gave in

Ice, to heavy for the fences to bear

it took a while to get the truck out of there

Here you can see how big some of the snow piles got (just compare it to the fence)
This one formed on only one day ..

There is usually the main entrance to the stable ..
