Spring has Sprung
And it was springtime! Apparently.
It was a balmy 3C (37F), and some 40-60cm (16-23in) of snow still lay on the gound. In the night of Friday to Saturday, a further 7cm (3in) of snow fell. The river was still frozen to such an extent that cars were able to drive across it.
Did I say springtime?
Well, according to my Finnish host, it did feel like spring. Everywhere, people are apparently planning what to put in their gardens, thinking of the pleasure of taking a swim in the river after sauna, etc.
