I'm getting seriously worried about the weather here now...
We felt the storm here as well yesterday, even if I live fa away from the sea now..

But the temperatures are even worse...
In two weeks the temperature have jumped between -20C to +10-12C several times..
Yesterday it was raining, and today it's -3C, so it's ice all over the place now...

After living through 3 hurricanes this past summer, I can appreciate the destructive power of storms. My prayers are with all those affected by the storms in northern Europe.
