I read somewhere, that 2007 has been one of the darkest years in Sweden for many, many years. Darkest in the meaning - not much sunshine.
The lowest registered amount of sunshine was measured in the month of December, in a town called Växjö. They only had 20 minutes of sunshine during that whole month... Twenty minutes!!
In most places in Sweden December had the bottom record of sunshine, since they started measuring weather!
Makes me feel, like this is the right place for us anyway - we definitely have more than 20 minutes of sunshine a day, a lot more...
