Have you ever been reading a novel in which, on each page, new characters pop up? It’s just one single passage you don’t fully pay attention to, because, while reading, you fix yourself a coffee. And as a result of that, you loose track of the plot immediately. The same applies to weather observations in our bay. A split second's lack of alertness is all it takes to miss the best part of the show – which can be anything from colorful night sky to rainbow or heavy snowstorm.
The ever-changing moods of weather: The view from our living room window is spectacular, no matter what season. There are two weather phenomenons I have witnessed on Faroe Islands for the very first time. One was an excessive red and green flicker above the water surface at bright daylight. The other appeared on a windy day in our village. I was thrilled to bits: Whirlwinds, in the shape of little hurricanes, danced over rooftops, hillsides and in our bay.
Unfortunately, I didn’t film the best part of the show, the whirlwinds gliding over the rooftops – for good reasons. First, I had to stare outside. Next, I had to stop myself from grinning. And afterwards, I needed to rush downstairs to get my camera. What I caught, in the end, is one minute and eight seconds of video proof: Wind is a dancer! Plus an insight: Always have your camera handy.
