Observing Sweden – Snowfall


I love to watch the falling snow

The laden tree limbs sag.

One thing I’ve learned for sure today is

Shoveling’s not my bag!

    As I’m also from the NorthWest, I was ok with some snow. but had never lived in a place with snow all the time…. until I moved to Wisconsin. I lived there exactly one year! hahaa, I remember so many morning of having to shovel the driveway and clean my car off before work. We eventually got one a nice snow blower, and it made life a lot better. Has it been snowing a lot this winter there?

      This was only the second serious snow here. We have had the mildest winter since Sweden began keeping records of the weather.
      I plan on buying a snow blower next year!

  2. So this is what you’ve been waiting for, Bruce !!!

      Yes. I can’t complain. It’s been the winter I wanted. The warmest in Sweden for the last fifty years.
      Last time I used a snow shovel was fifty years ago, and I feel every one of them!

  3. Love that shot of you! Thank you for sharing!! 🙂

  4. I’ve never shoveled snow in my life. Houston rarely saw a flake. It looks beautiful, but you don’t look like it’s fun.
