The Winter Chair

The Winter Chair


The long and cold winter continues. It started to snow again last night. We got around 30 centimetres of the white stuff. The traffic quickly turned into chaos with a lot of accidents and long delays in the public transport. Many of the side-walks are covered with snow, and it is ice everywhere, so it's easy to slip and break a leg. I had to shovel my way down to the mail box this morning to get the morning paper and after that workout I had to walk back empty handed, as no paper had been delivered. This is my third look at the winter chair that stands on a lawn close to a swimming pool in Tungelsta.

Yes, we had 3cm of snow this morning too and, once again, everyone has forgotten how to drive... apparently that's the case everywhere.

reading your post made me realize that too much snow can be no fun sometimes...

Luis Gomez said...

Sorry to hear that Steffe. Sounds like you are already pretty tired of the snow.

Lois said...

The chair looks so lonely!

Saretta said...

This chair is always cute...but it's really submerged by snow now!

Rachel B said...

Leif Hagen said...

That would be a great chair for you, Steffe, especially if you have hemorrhoids or had a recent colonoscopy!

Allison said...

Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Safe Leif, you "crack" me up!

James said...

I've heard of being in the hot seat but this is the opposite. We have no snow here. I wish you could send some to me.

Jacob said...

Thou are knee-deep (or worse) in white crap.

Sorry about the paper, but you probably needed the exercise! ;-)

This is an excellent photograph, though!

Great picture, almost surreal. Winter summed up in a single image.

Gunn said...

Find a princess who wants to sit on the chair....
Nice WINTER shot!:-)
Keep warm and enjoy the snow.

Steffe said...

I know a Princess Gunn, so that might be an idea, her name is Leah.

That's a good observation arabesque!

Spot on Luis.

Gunn said...

Leah would have been perfect!
She is beautiful, and dressed in white she could have been the Swedish Snow Princess....

It would be interesting to study the dynamics of the accumulating snow around this chair!

Chuck Pefley said...

Diederick Wijmans said...

This actually gets funnier every time you take a picture of it.

The lap of snow in this chair grows fatter and fatter.

Stay tuned for more dramatic photos of the winter chair!
