Mini-Post: Autumn is Here

Back in late March, as I stood in 50cm (20 inches) of snow in the Finnish countryside, I was told that spring was in in the air.

This week, while staying at the same location on the river Kokemäenjoki, I have been walking around in shorts and T-shirts, enjoying the sunny weather and the temperatures in the mid-20sC (mid-70sF). Yet, I have heard from a couple of people and read in a blog that apparently it's beginning to feel autumnal.

Go fathom.

  1. The winds are slightly colder, mornings and evenings darker, the green in leaves is darker and grass is probably also looking less fresh. Also the light looks a bit different and there's a certain sense of urgency in the air. The summer's ending.

    In March and maybe even earlier, again, there are some hints: There's more light and it's warmer. It's brighter out. The sun comes out more or it rains more - it's less cloudy and grey. And of course the sun is, even if the weather wasn't, warmer.
