A year in Sweden: Winter

So a while ago I posted the pictures from Autumn, and now it can already feel like winter sometimes, brrr. But it’s kind of nice at the same time. The seasons here are so strong. There is no wet summer or a grey winter (ok, there’s a lot of grey, but there’s also a lot of sunny days! yeey!). Last year there was snow from the 1st of December (right on the meteorological time) up to half of April, while everybody already had high hopes end of February. Yes, keep on dreaming!

Here in Stockholm the winter is already so different from Skåne, the humidity is lower, so even though temperatures are colder, it’s supposed to not feel like ice-cold-through-the-bone-shivers (yeah, right, keep telling that Vikings!). Meanwhile I’m getting heart-pulpitations as soon as I hit the icy wind. Somehow the winter was so traumatic (white-girl problem) that I seem to have just blocked it out completely. But yes, those are double (sometimes triple) layers of gloves and mittens, two pairs of jeans and 5 layers of clothing under our jackets.
