King Bore hits Gothenburg

This weekend Gothenburg was hit by a snow storm, creating a new snow record. The old record from 1967 was 53 cm. Today Gothenburg has had snow on the street for 67 days in a row, the longest period since 1985. It’s cold as well, likely the coldest for fifteen years. But hey, it’s beautiful in the sun! I went for a lovely walk along the deserted streets.

Snow in Gothenburg Postman only slips twice.

    Det är som on Gbg och Winnipeg bytt klimat. Vi har haft varmare än nånsin, och kortare vinter än nånsin. Mkt bisarrt (men jag njuter!)
