Well, it’s been fake spring here in Stockholm all week. The sun is shining. The temperature reaches highs like 10c (50F) – Yeah, yeah, I know, but it’s warm for around here in March. All the Swedes are happy. People are eating ice creams. I saw someone with their grill outside this weekend. I’m even cleaning off the balcony today.
And yet, we all see the weather report predicting snow and -4 c on Saturday. But we all choose to live in the now and ignore the second winter hovering around the corner. Maybe if we pull down the blinds and stay inside this weekend, we’ll never know that Spring went away.
