Does Punxsatawney translate to Sweden?

Phil saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter, technically. But for where?
Stockholm is getting melty! The snow heaps seem smaller, chunks of frozen stuff slide off the roof onto the streets below (you gotta be quick not to get a face-full of it!) and the puddles on the crosswalks between Sveavägen and Odengatan are like lagoons of murky, melted snow and who-knows-what-else. I love it! We haven't broken the freezing mark for more than a few hours, and they forecast more highs of -1c to -7c over the next week. And it still snows a little every day (sorry DC, I know you are getting hit this weekend, but our grocery stores are fully stocked...people don't ransack them for the forecast of a few inches here!) There is still plenty of snow on the ground. But with it staying light out until after 4 (uh huh, that's right, I said 4pm!) it feels a little more like spring every day. Thank god.
