AS FOR TODAY’S NASTY WEATHER, PICTURE THIS:
Friday, 9.30am. Temps 1°C. A bad-assed wind from the north, bringing temps down to unholy levels. AAH is about to set off for school. YT notes she’s wearing a short-sleeved polo shirt.

YT: Better put your winter ‘úlpa’* on – it’s freezing out there…
AAH: I am putting my ‘úlpa’** on…
YT: That is not an úlpa.
AAH: Yes it is.
YT: You call that thin summer jacket an úlpa?
AAH: Yeah. I’m putting a sweater*** on under it.
YT: I’m talking about your winter úlpa.
AAH: I’m not wearing it, it looks ridiculous.
YT: Don’t tell me you’re planning on wearing that thin jacket all winter.
AAH: Sure, why not?

[and so on.]
[ Sigh.]

Current temps a whopping 2°C, still a bad-assed wind from the north, daybreak was at 06.26, nightfall set for 20.12.

* Icelandic, meaning WARM winter jacket.
** AAH’s interpretation, meaning THIN windbreaker jacket.
*** Hooded sweatshirt.
