There is a big snowstorm closing in on Sweden in the comming twenty four hours they say, but it seemes to miss Skaraborg where I live. I wouldn´t mind if it came here though. I think I´m growing up!? Comming from Gotheburg I´m not used to snow and really cold weather. A winter there is mostly rainy and windy. When there is a real winter it´s usually so cold that the sea freezes so thick that the islanders can drive their cars over the water and the winds are bitterly cold. Up here it´s not the same. It´s usually real cold, but the lack of an ocean makes the wind less humid and then it feels so much warmer than down i Gothenburg. It took me some time, but now I actully likes when the snow is falling :-)
I love walking in the forest and does so every day. But when I come to this place I choose another path. I´m not welkome there. No person stops me, but the forest it self. Something in there makes me feel unwelkome. At first I just thought that I was stupid so one day I went in there anyway. I felt so worried that I had to leave it fast. The deeper into the wood I came, the worse it became. It´s nothing special in there what I could see, but I will never go in there again.
The headline news today is that there has been two murders here in Skaraborg within twenty four hours. Thank God it´s really unusual with murders in Sweden, but when it happens it will be the head news on national tv. It lookes as though one of the murders already is solved, the other one is to new to say anything about yet.
I´ve entered a photo competrition that is held by Swedish Radio Skaraborg with one of the pictures I´ve shown here. Woody thought that it would be a good picture to send to a photo contest. I had one more that I really liked, but I went with the one Woody liked. The other one is on the top of todays blog. There is some good pictures in the contest already, but I thought why not try. I´ll try to put a link here so You can see the other pictures (I don´t think mine´s there yet, I just sent it in to them). Thankfully it´s a jury who decides who wins and not woting. Usually the ones with big familys has a tendensy to win otherwise :-) :-)
here is the link, just klick on it : Bästa vinterbilden. (that means “The best winter photo”)
So hold Your thumbs and cross Your fingers! The contest is open till the seventeenth of Februari.
