After a snowstorm in Stockholm

A couple of days earlier my Swedish colleagues have laughed about the way they Danes had tackled the snowstorm that hit the country. Looking in retrospect I think that it was handled pretty well; the railroads took out 20 percent of the trains and the rest went on time, but the planes had to cancel a lot and loads of roads were blocked and loads of people went home early to not have troubles in the traffic.
As soon as I landed in Arlanda the day before the snowstorm hit Stockholm, and the snow continued to fall for more and 20 hours, and when I woke there was snow everywhere due to the fact that it had been snowing all night. Looking out the hotel window made me smile; I actually have a very ambivalent relationship with snow. I love when it is snowing hard and long; I love deep snow but I hate wet snow and the cold.
Stockholm was pretty blocked as well I must admit; my taxi driver was late due to the traffic and trains were cancel and planes delayed too.
