It’s been a long time since anyone could walk on the Baltic Sea. Recent winters have been pretty mild and we hardly had any snow. You could describe them as boring periods in between autumn and spring, when the temperature stayed above zero and the sky was constantly grey. So the stories that our ancestors could get to Sweden on a horse drawn sledge seemed like legends.
If you think about it, it’s only 300km and the Sea is more like a lake – we don’t even have floods, so if the winters were cold enough maybe this has happened?
This winter is as it should be! After experiencing -20C several weeks ago, -7C feels really warm. Fields are covered in snow, we all have taken out our warmest hats and scarves and when the sun shines, we rush out to the Sea, which has actually started freezing!
I wonder, how deep is the water underneath their feet?
