I wrote a rather interesting (if I may say so myself) blog on the idioms and expressions that Norwegians have that are related to nature and animals. Did a hell lot of research and reading there, yes, ahem, in Norwegian. I was rather amused to find that in many magazines and newspapers, the Viking locals like using expressions like "the shovel's in the ground", "as quick as it whistles", "ice front" etc, so I wrote down as many as I can find.
