Winter is here!

After 33 days of miserable, grey, rainy and mild weather, the winter finally arrived here in South-Western Finland on January 11th. On Saturday and Sunday it snowed a little and temperature was around -3...-6°C.

And then, like a push of a button, temperature dropped like a stone and nightly it has been -16...-19°C the whole week, with daily highs around -13°C.

Not only it's cold, but the days are sunny!

Bike commuting has been absolutely great in these conditions and excellent training for Rovaniemi 150 as well. Weather forecasts shows that the winter is here to stay. Although there are not much snow, these conditions are perfect for freezing for rivers, lakes and seas...
