WOW! That is Winter Wonderland, isn't it? I am happy to hear that the storm has calmed down. Although I think that storms are refreshing and even though they may be severe we need them.
We still have no snow, and they say there will be no snow till mid January. This is not typical for this part of Europe, though. Motorist appreciate the absence of snow, but without it we lose the magic of the season and also the light that it gives in this part of the year.
Falina, you are right, you should be about the same or even further North. It is in Finland where it gets really dark. But when the sky is overcast (cloudy, mostly), the difference between day and night is slight. Christmas will save us from the Dark! :)
