Waiting for the storm

There is a strong low pressure center over the Atlantic that is sending a storm our way. They are predicting heavy winds, gusting to hurricaine strength by this afternoon. There has not been a storm of this size here since December 1999, when it took me 6 vehicles and 12 hours to get home from work (bike, bus, ferry, train, bus, bike). Today all I have to do is stay inside, maybe change some diapers and do some dishes. Fredrik wants me to take him to the ice rink but we will have to see how it goes.

Storm update:
The storm has passed and we are alright. About 300,000 homes lost electricity, but not ours. There were a few fatalities, mostly involving trees and cars, and a hay bale and a guy who fell off a roof. LOTS of trees were blown down. Roads and train tracks blocked. Storm tides over 2 meters high in western Denmark, and 1.5 meters high in Helsinki.
