This picture has been going viral these past two days, taken by JÃ³annis SÃ¸rensen on January 18, 2012 at ViÃ°areiÃ°i in the Faroe Islands. He was on radio just now saying it had been shared about 2000 times already. He calls it “Where Nature Rules“.
My brother Bartal (the weather-interested geologist) sent me this weather satellite photo from the same day, with Faroe Islands looking like the evil belly button on top of the Earth.
It has been a tough winter, Bartal posted on Google+ on December 28th that we’d had 2 hurricanes (average windspeed above 33 m/s) and 3 storms (average windspeed above 25 m/s) only that (Christmas) week. If I sometimes seem a bit weak in energy here on the site, then you now know why. Sigh.
