A freezing solstice

Yesterday was the winter solstice. The "sun" rose at 8:51 yesterday morning and set at 14:45, making it the shortest day of the year. Last night was also the coldest night for the winter thus far with the temperature outside dropping to -21. The whole day today was quite nippy with temperatures staying around -20. Guess this will prepare us for our visit to the Ice hotel in northern Sweden in a few weeks time...

  1. I'm sure you will have respect and prepare since you are not used to the temperature, it's worse for Swedes living in Stockholm and south of there, they think it's a walk in the park sometimes, take care of your feet, fingers head and any skin not covered.
