Hmm... The country can be divided into three types of climate. Maybe you picked the wrong one.

Which part of Sweden? The horizontal rain in Göteborg was not too pleasant, but other then that, the weather and the seasons are just awesome.

Why is it, that people complain about the weather, but never do anything to change it?

Worst weather in the world. You've never been to St. Louis on a hot July day.

Haha, maybe you guys should try countries where the very ground is ripped up from under you biggrin.gif I can't imagine those tornado storms or hurricanes in America are very nice.

I'm happy with the weather in Sweden, I simply love love love snow smile.gif I've taken every opportunity to play in it like an overgrown child- I do get rather odd stares and some people have taken to photographing me while I make snowmen but... Yeah... Swedes don't seem to like the snow so much.

Having followed the weather reports from the UK and seen the havoc created there, I feel that we here - on the west coast at least - have been spared one hell of a lot of inclement weather. In fact my simple day-to-day statistics over the past ten years show that last year - despite many days of rain - was the driest for four years.
Make of that what you will. But I feel that our weather has been better than that 'enjoyed' in the UK of late.

When you keep records, however simple yet regular, you get to see how things are from year to year and can look back and actually compare the figures. A whole day of just light rain seems very wet, yet amounting to just a few mm. is vastly 'wetter' than when you get 50mm falling in a couple of hours.You really notice the difference.

I will say, though, that in all fairness, on the whole Sweden is no better or worse than any other country in this part of the world. Weather has no national boundaries, whatever you might think.
So in comment to the OP - No - I don't think, and in agreement with the foregoing post - USA's Tornado Alley must be one hell of an area in which to live during just the tornado season.

Variety, still winter now, so a few more weeks skiing, within 2 months we will have day after day of sunshine, maybe.
