"Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood."
In early November we got 22 cm snow in Helsinki because there was a strong wind blowing warm moist air from the sea to the freezing cold front on the south coast of Finland.
It sure was fun running on new snow already. Snow makes it easier to see as the days are dark this time of the year.
Now it looks like the weather has changed back to normal and most of the snow will possibly melt away in rain during the week ahead.

|The water in the sea pool is as cold as in the harbour, only cleaner of course.|
