The spruce looks as if sprayed with powdered sugar. Here in the forest it didn´t look as if there was so much wind really.
After the walk i drove to Falkoping to buy more firelogs and the tallow balls to tyhe birds. I realised then that it was almost storming up on mount Mösseberg. The problem living in open areas is that the snow continues to fly in the air long after the snow has stopped falling. So I and the few other drivers tool it very calm on the raod.
Up on mount Mosseberg it was a totally different thing. The winds were so strong that the car sort of mowed over the road and there were almost no sight at all sometimes.
Just some minutes after me there were two drivers that didn´t take it calm. On my way home the traffic stod completely still and had done so for almost an hour. There were a few wounded, but not svere according to the local radio. Why can´t people learn to take it easy on the roads when it snows? I think it´s better to come late than never, but some doest think so unfortunally. The traffic started to move just as they said that rain was about to start here on the local radio. Now the roads will be even worse to drive on. I really hope they will take it easy now at least.
In Falkoping the wind was calmer, but the roads were very slippery.
The road was totally blocked for a hour after the two cars had crashed. When we were allowed to drive again there had blown so much snow around my car that it was difficult to get away. Now I wont drive again until the weather is stabil once again.
I felt a drizzle when I got out of the car, so I came home just in time it seemes. Guess if I feel lucky not have to drive to work this week either :-)
