Delayed by snow

Winter appears to be on its way. The car was packed and we were about to drive off when the phone rang. Maria’s father had just been speaking to relatives in Dalarna. We would be crazy to come now, she said. Mora was in the middle of a snowstorm. They are expecting a half metre of snow overnight. Traffic chaos.

So we decided to delay until the morning since the weather is supposedly clearing tomorrow. But just now Maria’s mother phoned and said she needs the car, which we were planning to borrow, to get to work, since there is a forecast of snow here in Örebro tonight. In fact I just read that snow is expected all the way down to Skåne, the southern county of Sweden.

Who knows, we may be here all week, waiting for the snow to melt…
