Iceland is not Ireland

The Botanical Garden in Laugardalur in Reykjavík by Helgi Halldórsson
Recently I had a friendly dispute with a certain person about the climate of Iceland. This person claimed that Iceland had a climate like Ireland, as both were influenced by the Gulf Stream.

"No!" I said, and I showed her a video of an Icelandic TV series, Trapped, complete with blizzards and avalanches.

But I know from past encounters that this person can be slow to change her mind, so here are some photos of winter in Iceland.
