Looking through the window

Heavy rain fall today in Skelleftehamn and quite windy with temperatures dropping to 5 °C. More and more leaves – still bright yellow – cover the streets or are flushed away into the next drain. Soon the trees will be leafless and golden October will turn into grey.

This is the season where I start longing for snow and for wintry calmness. Even if I love all seasons, winter remains my favourite one.

    The beginning of the golden autumn is always a dream, I find it fascinating how the nature rase up for a last time before winter begins … Winter is beautifull, where it really winter is, so as high up in the north… here it is usually only the calendar, which tells us that we’re having winter…! :-(

    Have a nice day!
    Colorful greetings

    When I talk about winter I mean the “real” one with snow, ice and frost, not the autumn-like winter found in many places in Central Europe.

    When I lived in Essen I used to say: „Now it’s winter, the rain got colder!“

    First snow came in Kusfors as well. Kusfors is just seven miles (70 km) away. But I guess the snow already melted away, Sandra.
