A Storm Is Brewing: Upwards Of 40 Metres Per Second Expected!

It’s that season again God damn it!

The Icelandic Met Office says a storm will hit our shores this evening with winds of up to 40 metres a second–that’s 144 kilometres an hour! The storm will rage in the Westfjords, the north and the southeast. Also the way too powerful people in Skagafjörður can expect a lot of rain, a lot.

I am dreading having to walk home from the office in this weather. The rain will Tyson my face and the wind will sweep me off me feet like Ryan Gosling does every time I just hear his name–Jesus, how hot is Ryan Gosling right? But thank God I have my 66° North Laugavegur rain coat, Workman classic Fishermen’s Knit Cap and my waterproof bum bag. It means that I’m ready for anything and the weather can do its worst. How great is 66° North?

So dress like your searching for emperor penguins and pray that Iceland doesn’t literally blow you away.
