I came back from Dallas yesterday to quite a bit of snow here in London. Whenever it snows here, there's always quite a bit of disruption and lots of national hand-wringing about our inability to handle the precipitation.
This article in the Guardian is a perfect example. Sweden is used as a model for handling winter weather. I think it's a little funny. Of course Swedes are accomplished at coping with snow and cold; after all, they have many months to practice every year!
We'll be there in less than three weeks to sample the winter delights ourselves. I'm looking forward to it.
