A sunny, winter Saturday ended with a beautiful, somewhat hidden sunset. December sunsets are rare, mostly as December sun is rare as well. Just before the darkness settled in over us, a cloud front arrived from the east, giving the afternoon sky a dramatic feel.
As it grew colder, within hours we received the first snow of the season. Well, maybe calling it snow would not be quiet right. Perhaps white precipitation would be more adequate.
However, the night was cold and the light powder stayed through the night, giving the landscape outside my windows a certain Holiday feel this morning.
As we celebrate the third Sunday in Advent and in Sweden the traditional St. Lucia day, we are now only ten days away from Christmas.
