A memorable Day

Winter Sunset
The snowiest day for over a century. That sounds like fun doesn't it? That's what we had around Stockholm yesterday. People will remember this day for a very long time, although they probably want to forget all about it. We got around 40 centimetre of snow which was 40cm too much for everyone. I have read countless reports about people being stuck out on the roads for ten hours, schools had to close early as the bus service was cancelled. Trucks without Winter tires blocking roads everywhere, people skiing on the streets in the capitol, the stories just keeps coming. So to calm everyone down a bit here is the sunset from yesterday afternoon. You can see this photo and more snow related snaps at SvD.

En härligt krämig färg på kvällshimlen efter en dag med vinterväder. Det är märkligt men de 10 mil som skiljer mig från Stockholm är tillräckligt för helt olika väder. Vi fick ingen snö igår och jag följde utvecklingen i storstadstrafiken på distans utan att se några extrema problem i "våra" trakter.

Bästa grejen under hela onsdagen var på Twitter där taggen #kvalvaka peakade på sena kvällen. En kvalmatch mellan Karlberg och IFK Luleå skulle spelas och den flyttades från den ena planen till den andra innan den hamnade på Bosön och i deras stora tält. Tyvärr satt Luleå fast i en buss och matchen startade inte förrän efter midnatt. Det blev ett väldigt intresse t.o.m. bland landslagsspelarna som samlats inför Frankrike-matchen på fredag.

That is a beautiful and colourful sunset. Looking at those photos, the city looks like a big headache with all of the snow. A good day to stay home if you can.
