-20 Degrees Celsius This Morning

Some pictures from this mornings walk.

Now that's a little nippy.  Good thing the wind wasn't blowing.  It is 8:30 in the morning.  The sun was coming up and the moon was still up.

The hairs in my nose were freezing and I would twitch my nose and could actually hear them crackling.
Strange sensation. 

Ralle loves it for about an hour.  He too wants to come back into the house.  Twenty below zero Celsius is the temperature most freezers are set to.  In Fahrenheit it's -4 degrees.  That doesn't sound so bad.  In Kelvin that's 253 degrees.  Boy we would vaporize at that temperature.

This is unusual for Southern Sweden.  The winter snow has come early and colder this year.
And, they said last year was the worst and coldest winter in mans memory.  If this is a trend, what will next year be like?

  1. I called Karla in to read your post. “No way would I live there!” she said. We start to chill even before it gets frosty, 0°C, 32°F. Nice pictures, though.
