Actually, the kallbadhus adventure was cancelled because of the weather. Not that a little rain is ever a problem when you’re taking a quick cold plunge into the Öresund, but the wind is still blowing pretty good and the waves are pretty high…and that’s not something you want to deal with when it takes every bit of gumption you’ve got just to get in the water in the first place!
We "weathered" the worst of the storm without incident (save one rather disturbing dream I may or may not expound on later) and with electricity, but lots of others weren’t so lucky. Over 400,000 people in the southern part of the country lost power at some point during the night and some are still waiting for it to be restored. There are eight deaths being attributed to the storm and most of the fatalities were travellers. I thought the authorities were going a bit overboard by advising everyone to stay indoors…but now I’m not so sure.
