Day 16 — “There’s no such thing as bad weather . . .

. . .  only bad clothing.”

These words appear on the Swedish coat of arms or in the national anthem or somewhere because every Swede lives by them.

We set out to put it to the test today because we had a nice summer rain beginning in the afternoon. Here are shots of us in our new rain gear taking the dog for a walk after dinner:

 

The verdict–both of us dry as a bone. I don’t know what can be done about the searing heatwave across the U.S. but in Sweden, “There’s no such thing as bad weather . . .”

  1. Dan,
    I grew up in Minnesota and left when I was about 25 when I moved to CA. About a year before I moved, I had purchased an old seal skin coat and a curly lambskin hat. Together with gloves and proper boots, I was the warmest during a MN winter that I ever had been. I had the realization then that it was part of the game of living in MN……dress for the game! Sort of along the same line of “no bad weather, only bad clothes”!
