Yesterday I walked home from church. That was it. About 20 mins. The weather was pretty ghastly - a biting wind and there was new snow on top of the ice. I sort of 'minced along' as my dad used to say.
Spring in Finland is a time of teasing. You think it's just round the corner, only to find you're still in the thick of winter - in spite of the longer brighter days. Today has been just like that.
Early this morning it was minus 12 C. Yep cold! then we had a snow storm. About 3 inches fell in next to no time. But by lunchtime it was a warmer, only -3 C, and the sun was out again. I walked locally - for about 25 minutes with the dog. And loved it.
