I got up from bed this morning to find the temperature here in southern Finland had gone over to the plus degrees side again, +3° celsius to be exact. This has been the norm now for the past few weeks. Usually this time of year it would be somewhere between -7°C and -35°C. We've had very little snow this winter so far. Normally I would have enough snow-shovelling exercise finished by now to prepare myself well for the intoxication hit that comes with a certain green celebration in March. Instead I find myself looking at reports of bad weather from abroad. For example, torrential rain in the Caribbean, heavy snow and continued freezing temperatures in the US and Canada, and of course crazy floods and storms in the UK and Ireland. At the moment I saw it's snowing in Ireland, maybe because it has probably been blown halfway up towards Greenland!!
|Foggy February in Finland!|
Instead of shovelling walls of snow I have to look at constant grey skies and think fog. There's even the occasional shower. I can't complain really, in fact I'm very happy! The less snow-shovelling the better, I'm not much of a morning person, especially anytime before 08.00 or when temperatures are -10C or less.
