Signs of spring are in the air (or road)! Driveway is almost free of snow now. All other places in our yard are still very white but we can see slow process here. Well, this is already a T-shirt weather for the Finns!
Kaapo’s godfather Tommi brought an old kicksled for us. I and Tommi fixed it and now it is in the working condition and has a new red paint on it.
It really moves fast and is very handy here in countryside when you want to go from place A to place B in the winter time.
We are having new snow at this very moment. I am not that happy about it because it seems that we are going to have spring time in June or so. Sigh.
I have always found snowmobiles very irritating vehicles. They are very noisy, extremely smelly, and produce lots of exhaust gases. And many of the snowmobile riders do not know where you are allowed to drive one. I accept when the snowmobile is used for reindeer cattling or for going to ice-fishing. The sport-usage of snowmobiles should be banned in my opinion.
This morning it was -23 C still so it seems that our spring is not starting very soon. Although sunshine is somehow warming up already but it is not intense enough to melt the snow if the base temp is so low. I am now counting spring all those days when we will not get any new snow. I think that is a very good rule now and gives nice spring feeling at least.
It was a very dull weather yesterday and I went shooting in our yard. I looked in the forest at our backyard and took few shots of the woods. Even if the forest looks very gloomy, I like the result what I got. The photo delivers exactly the feeling I was having at that very moment. And actually those tree trunks are very beautiful if you just want to see their beauty.
This winter has been very snowy and lately also very cold one. Snow everywhere plus -37 C is a cool combo. Well, actually we are very much used to this kind of a weather but because our winter lasts almost six months you have to complain at least littlebit in some point. 😉
