Lucky you Oren, my parents didn't share my interests.  But your memory must be a little disoriented, while the glacier were positioned in the end of the lake, closer to the cliffhanger/tongue. The field you remember must ve the shoreline along the lake, probably covered with some vegetation.

IT sure has continued to retreat! I was there first time 1995, then almost the whole lake was covered with ice. This was the situation for ca. 2-4 years, thereafter retreating fast until the lake again was icefree.

21.7C at Longyearbyen, Svalbard today, thus "shattering" the previous max dating back to July 1979! Another poor year for the retreating glaciers up there...

You got to look at the bright (or holistic!) side of it,  even "evil" stuff as this virus end up as nutrition for new life :P

In Norway this is ALL for free! And we take this for granted, paying our taxes more or less willingly. Despite this we Even survive and have handled this Corona-era fairly well. 

Personally I struggle to find any ups about living in the Promised land these days. But what do I know, being an European!

Maybe Germany manage to test many more of these younger groups least prone to die. Any statistics around proving this? Also my country, Norway, so far is keeping a fairly low mortalityrate. Is this due to a more efficient healthcaresystem, thus being able to act earlier, monitoring the pasients more thoroughly?

What ever it is, too few are being tested these days, making the numbers out there highly unreliable, making it pretty hard to predict the direction this virus will bounce.

My country, Norway, is rapidly approaching 400, thus passing  UK, a fact I find sort of surreal. Point is, the dark numbers out there are huge! I suspect  many countries not being able to test the sufficient number of cases. 

Personally I've been having flu-like symptoms for a few days, but in my civilized country we can stay away from work at least 3 days in a row, fully paid. Workers in far too many countries lacking these rights will keep going to work spreading this virus Even faster...   

Edit: Ironic or not, just minutes after posting I register that the Uk health minister have tested positive.
