I am so surprised that you US guys could fantasize about such an expensive country with a 3 hours daylight winter! I have several swedish friends herearound that wouldn't return to their country! Well, summertime could be great anyway for some holidays...
The climate you describe Fritchie is the one we have here in Belgium, Netherlands, north of France.
If you want to join dreams and efficiency here is a forum to know more about Sweden and swedish people (including schooling to not forget the main topic of the thread)
