All alone

The kids had a week off. “Sportlov” as they say in Swedish. So I decided to take the Friday off as well and hit the ice.

Not a lot of people there. But looking at the thermometer, it was not surprising. +4C outside, meaning the ice was bad. Passing the puck required the effort level of a shot-on-goal.

That’s how it’s supposed to be

We got another dump of snow last night. About 10 to 15 cm. I just love it !!!

And I thought 11 years ago when I moved to Sweden that this would be a typical Swedish winter. But that turned out to be a huge disappointment. A typical winter in Gothenburg is just windy, a lot of rain and temperatures just above freezing. Meaning horrible!

I hope that this year will be a trend setter. And we cross our fingers that it will still be white in 2 weeks time.

Ice skating

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.
