But "moist" means slightly wet, damp. It doesn't have anything to do with temperature.


Cold

It did mention cold later in the sentence if I remember right..... ...Yes cold winds... But the summers are nice and spring time.... and yes I could go on, but you already read the article, no?

... summers are wet and moist!
Somwhere I read something about an average temperature of 23 C in July. How can you get such an average without even reaching it? Probably this is the worst summer Sweden had for a century and I choose it for a stay. Well, extended spring from march to september is not the worst thing that can happen and there is still hope left.

Thats so true. But I had a much warmer day in September in Germany and even today at the end of September we have temperatures here which were unheard of in July in Sweden.
But I have to admit, that July was lousy in Germany, too. And I have to admit, that summer in Sweden can be very, very nice.

I have spent my coldest winter in goteborg, when it was -20c and all I had on was jeans and a light top ! Boy did I suffer then next day (New Years Day) !

Beautiful citie though, the Garbo cafe serves some very very fine food.

Warning about Sweden : Be careful to remember where you left your coat/jacket !

I think the temperatures refer to day time averages rather than night time. I am not quite sure, it is almost like it wasn't me who wrote this article at all.

Maybe I should put in some amendments. Linguistic clarifications are needed in many places.

But I am still in Britain. Gothenburg is my 'home' though.

I think you forgot to mention in your article that in gothenburg autumn starts in september and ends in may...
The natives have actually adapted to a life in a steady drizzle, half-hearted wind from the sea and walking around in a salted slush-puppie excuse for snow.

How true! smiley - biggrin
The approach to real Scandinavian, snowy winters is surprise... Trams won´t work and busses will be late due to 3 cm of snow... Winter is not the best time of year in Gothenburg. But we still love our town.
