The folks at the weather service are finally predicting some winter weather. It finally snowed up north. They say that five days of temperatures at 0 degrees C. or below signifies winter weather. That is not in our forecast here but it was about 4 C. today with wind, which makes it feel surprisingly colder. Wind chill was never real to me before.

Director David Fincher was wondering how Swedes survive the winters. He spent last winter filming the Hollywood remake of Girl with the Dragon Tatoo in rural Sweden and was amazed how people can stand it.
