Swede Kalle Halfvarsson even pointed to his genitals and admitted that his “snoring” froze. “Fortunately, I have a second child soon, because if I continue like this, it will be difficult in the future,” Halfvarsson joked. A slight warming was announced on Sunday: about minus ten degrees is expected.
