I’m glad my day was quite uneventful.

My day has been rather uneventful but others have had a much worse day. We didn’t get that much snow here but further south it seems to have been chaotic. Over 100 cars and lorries crashed on a bridge, 3 died and 18 was taken to hospitals. One person was trying to help others when a lorry came in high speed, the trailer hit one person. There were several other car crashes today too but none as bad as this one.

A 22-year-old woman working as a cleaner on commuters stole one of them last night. How she even could do that is a mystery, she drove it at maximum speed and suddenly it derailed and went straight in to an appartement building. Luckily those living in the appartement she hit with the commuter survived without any injuries, the woman in the train however did get hurt.

It’s not that bad having a rather uneventful day when reading about things like this. I’m glad I did all shopping yesterday instead of today, even if we didn’t get that much snow the roads still were a bit bad. Even if I drive carefully it doesn’t mean others will.

I put up a blanket by the opening in the dog house to the dog yard yesterday and to my surprise it still was there when I came home this afternoon?! Could it be that they finally understands that it’s nicer to keep the heat in the dog house? Nah, don’t think so 🙂 Doris the Doe and her daughter is eating in my garden, my dogs and cats are sleeping in my cottage and I’m about to make something to eat. There’s a fire burning in the stove and all is well here in the village at the outskirts of the world.

  1. hi christer! i heard about that woman this morning on the news but did not know it was in sweden. we are expecting an ice storm which is never fun. i hope people stay off the roads. ice when you live on a mountain is never good. joyce

    • Hi Joyce!

      I have to admit that I was surprised that it happened here 🙂 The police believes that they know why she did it but won’t say anything until the investigation is done.

      Ice storms are nasty! We rarely have them thankfully! I’ve seen photographs from the Us of really nasty ones, everything was completely covered in several inches of ice! I hope they are wrong in their predictions!

      have a great day!

  2. Hi Christer,
    What’s a commuter?

    Sounds like a nasty day for many people. I would think that Swedish people would know how to drive in snow and ice. Your story makes it sound people in Austen Texas trying to drive in a dusting of snow. 🙂

    Those ponies are really shaggy this year. I like them shaggy but then I think about having to brush them in spring when all that winter coat starts shedding out.

    Kind of a grey day here today. There was a little bit of sun earlier but it’s gone now. It’s still relatively warm but will get colder and maybe snowier later this week. It is still January, I guess.

    Enjoy the warmth and the uneventful day. 🙂

    • Hi Caryn!

      That’s the word I found for a train that’s much like a subway train but goes from one town to the other with people going ton work 🙂 That was a short description 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Surprisingly enough we tend to forget how it is to drive in snow every year 🙂 🙂 But the weather didn’t help. It was foggy and it had snowed a lot down south and when they had scraped the road the fog froze on the asphalt. So snow, fog and black ice is no good combination but why lower the speed?

      They are very shaggy this winter, I sure hope that the owners love to brush their horses, more than anything else, a lot at spring 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Yes January will rule for some time more and then our coldest month arrives 🙂 Oh how I wish spring comes early this year 🙂

      Have a great day!

  3. That commuter thief must have been on drugs or really angry at the company. So relieved to hear no one was hurt at the building she crashed into. Pass along any details of this crazy story, I would like to know what they discover. As usual stupid people driving too fast for road conditions, happens here all the time. Good luck driving out there!

    • Hi Robin!

      That was my thought too 🙂 Those living in that apartment were really lucky, if they had been in the wrong room they most likely wouldn’t be alive now. I’ll tell You more when I know more 🙂

      Yes why adjust the speed to the weather and road conditions?

      have a great day!

  4. Ja fy vilken fruktansvärd olycka det var idag:( Måste ha varit rena fasan att vara fast mitt i smeten:( Städtanten som stal ett tåg verkade ju inte klok, hur sjutton kan man få för sig att sno ett tåg? ;)) Undrar vad som ligger bakom. Här har varit lite otäckt på vägarna idag och som du säger det spelar ingen roll om man kör försiktigt själv när det finns idioter ute på vägarna:( Har precis kommit hem efter träning på gymmet så nu ska jag ta mig något att äta:) Ha det gott/Monne

    • Tjänare Monne!

      Ja dagar som den är det skönt att leva ett händelselöst liv 🙂 Jag undrar hur hon kunde tycka att det vore en bra idé att stjäla ett pendeltåg 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Vägarna här är förvånansvärt bra för en gångs skull! De har till och med skött vägen ner till 47:an! Det händer inte ofta 🙂 🙂 :-9

      ha det gott!

  5. How strange, to steal that train. It makes me angry that people who are bent on hurting themselves so many times involve innocent people. Thank goodness no one in the building was injured.
    Yes, uneventful days can be nice.

    • Hi Cindi!

      I do wonder how she was thinking when she stole it? What was it that made her think that it was a good idea??? 🙂

      I love my uneventful days 🙂

      have a great day!

  6. Christer,
    In the south, places like Washington, DC, they close everything down when they get 6 or more inches of snow. They have very few plows, and people just don’t know how to drive in the snow as they get so little of it.

    Our warmth is ending. There will be some snow but not here though it will be colder, down to the 30’s.

    I’m going to the movies tomorrow to see the movie about catching Bin Laden. My friend wants to see it so I said I’d go though I can take it or leave it.

    Have a great day tomorrow!

    • Hi Kat!

      I can’t understand how people can forget from one year to another that we always get winter here 🙂 🙂 🙂 but we don’t get black ice that often even though the fog should have given them a clue that it would appeare.

      It snows of and on all day but it’s that kind of snow that never seems to land anywhere 🙂 They say we’ll get sun this weeekend and rather cold as well.

      I must say that that movie is one I can miss without getting upset 🙂

      Have a great day!

  7. Ja du, man tror ju att folk har vett att ta det lugnt när det är blixthalka OCH dimma! Men…en av gubbarna som ryckte ut för att hjälpa till berättade att han var chockad över att han blev omkörd på vägen dit – både av personbilar och lastbilar! Och “damen” som snodde ett tåg och gasade rätt in i ett hus, men herregud! Vad tar det åt folk!?
    Vi var uppe i Visby i måndags för att ta dom SISTA (hoppas jag) stygnen efter 10 dagar med tratt. Och det gick fantastiskt bra. Santos behövde inte ens en lugnande spruta, trots att ett stygn satt lite hårt. Nu är “hålet” alldeles slätt och fint och all den fibrösa ärrbildningen borta – och han fick t.o.m. vara utan krage i na…..och hoppas att allt är OK. Strulet har ju hållit på i över ett halvår!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Hejsan Susie!

      Lite borde man tänka efter tycker jag! Just dimman är ju ett klart tecken på att det mest troligt är svinhalt, speciellt på en bro.
      Jag undrar vad det var som gjorde att hon tyckte det var en bra idé att stjäla ett tåg 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Men det vore väl skönt om eländet kunde vara över för Santos nu! Han måste blivit förvånad när när han plötsligt kunde se hela världen utan att kragen skymde 🙂 🙂

      ha det gott!
