Darkness in Sweden

By this time of the year Sweden sores serenely into the fog and darkness. Today, we have daylight between 07:20 in the morning to 16:34 in the afternoon. The temperature is about 10 C and the rain is pouring sideways against my office window in the brisk breeze.

I am glad that I didn’t take the bike as I planed this morning. For the buses at least no energy is consumed by the air conditioning but the wet streets and the wind increase the fuel consumption a lot. When the winter is getting colder in the Nordic countries we turn on the coupé heater to get a descent atmosphere in the cars and the buses.

On the other hand a walk in the forest can still be quite rewarding. There are still plenty of rose hips, blackthorn and juniper berries to harvest.
