From Tropical Days to Green Winter in one Week

Yes, it's correct. It's all about living 60 degrees North.
We are used to dramatic changes in weather, temperatures and Climate.
We have had the most catastrophic Fire Forest ever in Norway - Southern Norway - cabins, cottages and farms burned down ( More than 30 K dekars of Forest damaged).
Northern Norway: Green Winter - with rain and temperatures at the highest just above freezing point. (Global Heating? No. Climate change? Yes)

Here, in our Summerhouse, we went swimming last Saturday (22 C watertemp 71.6 F, land: 89.6 F). This Sunday 12 C land temperature (53.6 F). Raining. Needed yes, but so chilly. brrrr. It's then nice to have a Fireplace.
I did sleep until 3 pm to Day. Lot's of different dreams. Some pleasant but some not.

Here you see Felicia. She is pregnant. Watching the weather. It did start raining again soon after.

Rosa is wounded. Inflamation. Her right cheek looks like a baloon. I did not have the heart to take a photo of her. Must bring her to the Vet tomorrow.

Did call Ingelin (my daughter). Anna will be with her in Hong Kong last week of June and first week of July. I'm gonna visit Mats (son) in Michigan first weeks of August.
In between we will have some Days with our lovely friends Renny and Diane in Mariestad.

Love you all.
Hope to be back soon to read and comment

Yea, strange and extrema weather change. In Finnmark up north of Norway, I can confirm green winter: The birch trees had just started growing leaves. We had around 5C, but it was really nice anyway.

Felicia looks like a Queen :-)

Thanks for plugging me Tor!

Yes, I know what you mean. Even though we seem to have had better weather here in Stockholm then every one else, we too have had a dramatic temperature drop this week. Not as much rain as you, but enough to keep banging my head ;-)

Congrats to Felicia's pregnancy, looking forward to see lovely kittens later on.

...and good luck taking Rosa to the Vet, poor girl.

Seems like you're getting a busy summer this year :-)

Incredible that your weather is so erratic...! I'm not sure my body could take these extreme changes in one day to another....

Tor & Anna....I know this is such a very hard time for you both and for your children, too....My heart goes out to you both and I think of you all of the time. May the pain you are in right now, ease just a little bit as time goes on....I send you BIG BIG HUGS!

Be kind and be gentle to yourself, dear Friend. The healing of the heart is long and slow.
Lovely news about Felicia, but sad to hear of Rosa. Hope she is well soon.

That's so strange: we had the same exact temps here last week. Wild weather. It is still cold and raining now. That is a lot better than that awful heat. Congrats on the upcoming baby cats!

Canada is getting weird weather too. We had record snow fall and a late spring. Now it thunderstorms most nights and one day is 30C and the next 10C. Our flowers are budding like crazy, like they feel like they need to reproduce or die. We normally are in aweful drought. Now we are flooding. Lots of tornadoes too.
Michigan is really close to Ontario :) ........neighbours.....perhaps you and your son want to travel north of Toronto.......

Hi Tor, the weather is playing funny tricks down here, too. Floods, draught, snow and hot weather...climate change is live and well.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

It's always so strange how Life gets back to "normal" after such shocks to the system, Tor. You seem to be doing better than most!

Le temps est instable ici pour le mois de juin. Mais ça ne me dérange pas car la grosse chaleur est difficile à supporter. La météo parle d'inondations dans le centre des Etats Unis, sur un territoire grand comme la France.
Monsieur Tor, vous êtes un pigeon voyageur! Ma fille part pour 10 mois en Finlande à compter du 28 juillet! Les voyages forgent la personnalité!
