Re: What is happening

We have snow! We'll probably get a White Halloween, makes a change from all the black Christmases we've been having in recent years. And might have this year as well.

Par for the course here in early spring. Spring for us starts as soon as the average temperature per day stays above 0 C.

Re: What is happening

Our summer's been unseasonably cool so far, with only a few days where temps have hit the 20 C mark. However, people are dying of heatstroke in Southern Europe.

Re: What is happening

No, we visited Kiruna (the ESA "space town" of the North) in Sweden and drove past Narvik in Norway. Tornio/Haparanda was a fun experience, you can literally walk across the border.

Re: What is happening

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Unlike most tables, that one actually has a story behind it. I bet you'll be telling it to most of your dinner guests, the first time they see it.
