The blizzard of 2012

A Winter Afternoon On the road again
The calm after the storm is what you can see on the top photo, it's one of the greenhouses here at Bergdalen. We had the blizzard of 2012 yesterday. We got something like half a meter of snow. Arlanda airport closed. Many schools did the same as the commuter trains didn't run, nor did the buses which is why you could walk on the streets, which a woman is doing on the second photo. People were stranded everywhere waiting for buses that never arrived. That is never any fun in a snow storm. If you would like to read about the storm, I recommend this article in The Local.

Wow. It looks so peaceful and pretty.

Snow is forecast here for the night, 3 to 5 cm. Tomorrow might be chaos...

That greenhouse shot is fabulous! Snow is pretty in pics but sure can cause havoc.

Woo, lots of snow. The top photo is really unusual, love the lights glowing through the snow. It's sleety here in Yorkshire, heavy snow in Scotland too, I think.

Two very different photographs, but each is terrific. Maybe I like the fiery greenhouses just because it is more unusual.

It always looks so pretty Steffe, but I can imagine the reality is not quite so romantic.

The first image is stunning, like a volcano in the arctic. Brilliant color, and those of the Swedish flag!
