The sun was above the horizon luxurious 10 minutes. If the sky was clear, people might have seen the sun properly from high places, like on top of a fell (a small mountain / big hill).
Already on Saturday the sky was glowing red. This image is from last year, compliments by YLE.
The white nights, nights without the night continuous days, or how ever you want to call it, continue late July when the days again start to shorten until late Nov.
This is a strange, beautiful country we live in! And I love it!
OK, about a week ago I was hating the weather; The slid was back - Loskapaska oli palannut!
It was raining pure water on and off for 2-3 days and temp was somewhat +2-3 C. The roads became like Belgium in the winter time. And now I mean the 2 half days of winter that Belgium normally has. This year I have understood they had for few days a proper winter.
...and now they are back to dull fall-type of season they call winter, just because the calendar says so...
In few days the beautiful images in southern Finland dissapeared, including Marge Simpson -lookalike BBQ at the backyard, behind one of the candle lamps. Same thing with these sticky snowfalls hanging from inch-by-inch iron bar.
I love winter - still!
