“I am tall but the snow reached up to my waist.”
5 Feb 2016 – All schools are closed in Patreksfjörður in the West Fjords due to heavy snowfall last night. An avalanche alert is still on in the small town. “We’re totally snowed in,” says director of the town council Ásthildur Sturludóttir. “I am tall but the snow reached up to my waist.”
The snow was very wet and heavy making it difficult to traverse. “This is going to be complicated to clear,” she said to mbl.is.
