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.
