Mosquito free / Myggfritt

Today it was -4º Fahrenheit (-20º Celsius) in Härnösand. Where my mum lives, one hour from here, it was -22º F / -30º C ! We have an expression in the north of Sweden to describe particularly cold winter days: myggfritt. Mygg = mosquito, fritt = free. Today was mosquito free.

Speaking of animals, late last night a very big fox strolled past my window. In the middle of town.

Idag var det -20 grader i Härnösand och -30 där min mamma bor, bara en timme härifrån. Vi har ett uttryck i norra Sverige: myggfritt. Idag var det myggfritt.

På tal om djur; sent igår kväll promenerade en väldigt stor räv förbi utanför mitt fönster. Mitt i stan.

Oh my god, -30!!! I'm freezing here in UK with -1.
But you guys are prepared; As my German friend says: It's not the weather that is bad, it's you wearing the wrong clothes.
You look beautiful in the pic.
Merry Xmas.
