Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder. In Sweden you hear this all the time. It really just means that there isn’t really bad weather, just bad clothes. In other words, if you wear the right clothes, you won’t be bothered by the weather.
Rain, wind,… it is no reason for the Swedes not to go outside. Rain is no reaseon to complain. Swedes have been spending a lot of time outside from an early age. You see, especially in the autumn and winter, children playing outside in rain suits/ski suits. This way they don’t get cold (and a little mud isn’t a problem) and they can still enjoy themselves to the fullest. Adults also have good (read: warm and waterproof) clothing in their closet. Outdoor trousers are a standard part of the wardrobe. And the trick of dressing in layers is also well known.
