Winter weather 2014
White Telemark - 2014
A major problem in Telemark (and other parts of the country as well) are foreign trucks, coming from the continent in Central and Southern Europe and who have no proper winter tires and / or snow chains fitted to their vehicles. These trucks often cause major traffic problems when they either do not manage to climb up the hills, get stuck across the road or are sliding out along the roadside. Telemark is a very hilly county, with both steep climbs and descents. Rescue services and garages have plenty to do these days because of much careless traffic along the roads.
This Road Movie shows the weather situation in Rjukan / Telemark, on Monday morning, January 27, 2014.
