Change in the Weather Music

I've been a bit hooked on First Aid Kit I think in part due to the weather change that is coming. Their song Emy Lou starts with the line "The bitter winds are coming in and I am already missing the summer". First Aid Kit are from Sweden so no where near the cold in western Washington as in essentially all of Sweden. That said, it will not be long and our northwest Washington temperatures will stop reaching 60 and we will have that long chilly stretch of weather that requires a bit of tolerance. The second line of the song is "Stockholm is cold, but I've been told that I was born to endure this kind of weather". 

Our winters are not severe, but we do go a long time with no warm weather. A cold front is moving in late today and another with wind on Sunday. We may get some more dry warm weather late next week so a little early fall warm still might be left.

Another First Aid Kit song that brings some nostalgia as well as a reminder of a current loved one has a wonderful line regarding what the living in the north is like, It always takes me by surprise how dark it gets this time of year". Our days are getting very rapidly short, but Sweden still beats us on that particularly in the north of the country.
