Just when you think that the weather is going to turn around…. it turns into something ugly. 2 Days ago temperatures went just over zero. Meaning a lot of snow and ice started melting. It even rained for a few hours. And then is when it turned into hell. Actually hell froze over. This morning it was -14 again. And all this means that town turned into the world’s biggest ice skating ring. Just have a look at this on my way home from work yesterday afternoon.
People are not lifting their feet when they walk, they slide around. The safest way I noticed myself.
Nursery slope style hill in the area. About 5 minute walk when Milla or Zeb are sitting in their sledge. We went there the other day after we tried a little gentler slope the day before. Now Milla only wants to go faster and faster.
Just when you think it stopped snowing and it will all turn into grey water soon, we get another load of white fluffiness dumped on our head. Not that I complain. It seems like it’s gonna be a never-ending story this winter.
This one is from this morning when I was in the office looking out. We got moved a few floors up, so wee enjoy a better view from this part of town. And when I took this, it was like somebody was shaking out their pillows. Nice thick white snowflakes, could have been better if you ask me. The only bad thing about this all is that I have to be inside and am not allowed to go outside and play like a kid … Maybe another time.
It’s still freezing cold out there. Why ? It’s so cold I have been taking the tram to work. Don’t mind me, I can watch a bit of TV shows on my iPhone, or read some books. That’s all good.
But too cold to ride my bike to where my I ruining my pants these days. I don’t even get warmed up properly before I get there. And that means some extra coffee or tea to get warmed up once inside the belly of the beast. And that means too much bladderpressure, …. Too much detail.
On the positive side, all that white fluffy stuff is still lying around out there. Since CHRISTMAS !!! Never seen this before in my 10 years in Sweden. So nowI am just waiting for Milla to say that when she was younger, there was always loads of snow in the winter and it always lasted very long before it all melted away. I know that’s how it was for me.
Not from yesterday. It has been a while since we went to visit Liseberg.
I didn’t see that sad face there when I took the shot. 2 Hands next to it and we would have had an Edvard Munch.
There was some dirt on the window as you can see, so the shot is way from perfect. But I like his expression.
I posted this on Flickr while ago and totally forgot to post it here. So, there you go and have a nice weekend.
I found this article this morning in my RSS Reader and I have to say it’s pretty accurate. Even if I only have about 12 or 13 years in this business, I can say that all of them apply. Belgium or Sweden doesn’t matter where you are.
