Before I get to the meaning of the title of this post, it is November 30th allihopa! The last day of dreary November is nearly over and we are one step closer to a fun filled Christmas in Sweden. That means drinking, celebrating and passing out! Which begs the all important question: will it snow […]

Oh thank god! Grey, grey, grey November is almost over. And surprisingly there has not really been any snow. But I hereby request snow for Christmas, we all need to feel warm and fuzzy. Of course one of the best parts of the Christmas season is seeing all the Christmas displays. In Sweden, that means […]

We are midway through November in Sweden; the darkest, dreariest month the year has to offer. And in Sweden, it’s a month of grey, fifty shades of grey. Yea, I went there. I just couldn’t help it. But get your mind out of the gutter. I mean fifty shades of grey weather. Not whatever else […]

As you all are aware of, I am a kooky person. I LOVE the snow. Love it, love it, love it! That’s not to say I don’t love sunny days, and flowers blooming but watching the snowfall is something special. Snowfall is magical. Yet, this winter, sucks. No rain, no snow, no Weather! Stockholm feels […]

It’s amazing that there are only 32 days left until 2012. For better and worse, the year flew by. The end of November means the end of the seemingly darkest month of the year; the most depressing time (post summer, pre-holidays), and plain dullness. Last few years people complained it snowed and snowed and there […]

It’s Snowing in May

3, May 2011

It snowed today in Stockholm. It is nice to have rain to wash away the dustbowl on the streets, but snow is a little extreme. Started in October and still going strong in May. Thanks Andrew for the photo. PS- And two weeks ago we were grilling!

We all need to take a moment of silence because winter is really here. … … … … Back to depressing November in Sweden where we lose nearly 6 minutes of daylight every day. Not to mention, it’s snowing again.

The first snow came down a few hours ago. I know most of you are sulking or muttering curse words under your breath. I love it!!!! I love snow! There, I said it. I am crazy.

Know the song? “A long December and there’s reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last / And its one more day up in the canyons and its one more night in Hollywood / If you think you might come to California…I think you should” I love December, it’s long, dark, […]

The very kind gentleman I was staying with explained what the Swedes do doing the winter. I thought, that I and everyone else on Earth already knew of Swedish winter pastimes. Dead wrong we were. What do the Swedes “do” in the winter season to pass time? Invent things. Yes, build stuff. What do they […]
