Snowstorm

The snowstorm has hit us heavily. I haven't been outside all day because the lady in the news told me to stay in. I don't really know what's going on outside because the windows are totally covered in snow and i don't dare to open them. I can only hear the wind whistling outside.

The news lady also said that 32 000 homes do not have electricity. Luckily for me, the electricity was only gone for a while but is back now. Cars and buses are crashing, the ferrys between the islands and to finland do not go any more. Flights are postponed or canceled. People are advised to store water and candles.

In a way it's even kind of romantic. I just hope the homeless people made it to shelters or anywhere warm before the storm hit.

Wow. Sounds like that was an intense snowstorm! We're just starting to get snow here in New York, USA.
