A little snow

Joe It's been a long, cold winter here in Uppsala—unfortunately for me, I've been sick as a dog for most of it. I'm feeling much better now, no thanks to the local medical establishment—who ever heard of a country where you can't even get a decongestant by prescription? I mean, honestly! But I'm not bitter… and, anyway, if you're going to have a couple of weeks without more than a couple hours of sleep a night, it might as well be when there's lot's of curling on the tv, right?

Where was I? Oh, right, winter. So the snow started a little before Christmas, and since that time we've only had a couple of afternoons where the temperature got a couple of degrees above freezing, meaning that for the most part the snow has just kept building up. At the moment there's about half a meter of the stuff outside our door. I'm sure that it won't last too much longer now, so I figure I'd better post these pictures before the season sublimates away. And if these aren't enough, there's plenty more in the gallery.
(Yes, they're all pictures of snow—there really hasn't been that much to do other than watch the Olympics and walk in the snow. Well, that and hike back and forth to Migrationsverket to get our visas renewed, but that isn't nearly as entertaining as it sounds. And that, my friends, is saying something.)
Picnic, anyone?
All roads lead to… umm, Norrby?
