Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
My first day of the six day university winter holiday turned out to be full of snow. When I woke up and looked out, I could not see very much because there was so much snow in the air that visibility was close to zero. When I got dressed (quite a while later) and went out on my balcony to take a picture it had cleared up quite a bit, but visibility was still bad. There should be lots more buildings visible from my balcony than the ones in the photo above.
