OF COURSE you know about this! It´s in all websites about Iceland. Still, you scoff and say..."oh well, we´ve been through Typhoon Haiyan / Hurricane Katrina / Alaskan snowstorms / Arabian sandstorms, etc."
The weather in Iceland is unpredictable. Even when it is "summer." Just click on the video on your right for evidence. This was taken just this week, at supposedly the beginning of the summer months. THAT which fell off the road into a ravine is a camper. Vans and campers are notoriously easy to destroy by highland winds. We´ve even seen sedans go flying off the road.
To keep safe, Icelanders follow the weather forecast very very closely. It´s a lifeline...literally. Icelandic radio and TV broadcast weather changes on the hour and the weather service has an English language forecast for those who don´t understand Iceland.
