A genuine rain

It rained all day yesterday here in Reykjanesbær, and I think over most of Iceland. Today it will be raining all day as well, and the forecast calls for more rain through Tuesday at least.

I am watching the trees outside my window, and the rain dashing against the window panes. And I am thinking about how the sound of the rain fills the hall at Vikingaheimar with just the right ambiance. There ought to be weather in Iceland, rain and wind. We are perched in the middle of the North Atlantic, and the North Atlantic is not a languid pool, it is a body of water in movement, with surges and waves. This is the kind of weather Viking ships were made to handle, and it suits me just fine.
