Winter Is Coming!

November 9th, 2017

47th time?

I can and I did appreciate the different seasons.

I never ever cared much about autumn though. Actually I’ve never liked it. It is… just so depressing. ; ).

I do know some that really like it. Actually, I know (used to know) one who simply loved it.

It is not for me. It slows me down. I’m not made for the cold and being deprived of daylight.

And no, there is no beauty in it what so ever. The rapidly accelerating darkness, the cold and death (in any event hibernation) of nature?

15:38 my watch says, it is dark, cold (7 degrees Celsius*) and it started raining just now?

It will last for months and months. If I am lucky it may end in April, if I’m unlucky it will end in the end of May (it has happened before. I once saw snow falling the last of May…).

It is inhumane. No human should inhabit this place. It is not fit for humans.

Unforgiving and extremely brutal. No, it is not “exotic” in any way. It is extremely brutal. There is really nothing “nice” to say about it. It is terrifying. The sun disappears?

* Grad Celsius (°C) är en enhet för temperatur som har fått sitt namn efter sin uppfinnare, den svenske vetenskapsmannen och astronomen Anders Celsius. Den används för att uttrycka temperaturer på celsiusskalan.

Anders Celsius (27 November 1701 – 25 April 1744) was a Swedish astronomer, physicist and mathematician. He was professor of astronomy at Uppsala University from 1730 to 1744, but travelled from 1732 to 1735 visiting notable observatories in Germany, Italy and France.

He founded the Uppsala Astronomical Observatory in 1741, and in 1742 proposed the Celsius temperature scale which bears his name.

No, not Löfven, Åkesson, Lööf, Björkeson or the other clowns etc. “Anders Celsius”. He passed in 1744?

– “Vad? Var Celsius svensk?”
– “Ja, Anders Celsius var en svensk vetenskapsman och han dog 1744.”
– “Vad är 1744 minus 2017?”
– “Jag vet inte.”
– “Jo, det gör du visst. Räkna?”
– “273?”
– “Mm, ja (jag sade ju att du visste…).”

Unbelievably hard climate. The picture was taken exactly 15:38 UTC + 01:00, 2017-11-09, @ the 58th.

No edit. Looking at it? You would assume that the World is going to end? And in a sense it actually is. Every year. Five (5) months or more and it will get much darker.

It is harsh. Eventually even the rain falling from the skies will freeze. They say that Kung Bore will visit us this year.

The darkness or “You know nothing John Snow!”.
