Long about mid-December it dawned on me that something was wrong with my numbering of the days on my posts. We started the blog on July 5th so January 5th will be six months which should be Day 183. Well, there I was on New Year’s Eve crowing about all the fun we had on Day 172. It seems 8 days have gone missing from the blog. No big deal because everybody in the U.S. is watching the bowl games today. So today is now officially Day 182 or thereabouts.
Another unseasonably mild day for January in Sweden. I might have mentioned that some weather experts said this was one of the warmest Decembers in the past 250 years and that in future years due to climate change winters here in the south will more like extended Falls that move into spring. There are reports already of people finding mushrooms in the forests as well as strawberry plants and buds on trees. Shades of the Bay Area where the trees blossom in January or February.
I would not mind getting some snow but everyone I talk to loves the weather this winter. Last year they had five months of snow and freezing weather and that was a bit much.
Just a few gratuitous shots of sunset this afternoon around 3:30.
