We are in late March and it is snowing outside. It has been at daytimes above 0 C which means the snow has been slowly melting in the spring (or winter) sun, but the nights have been cold.
And tonight it will be even colder: -25 C expected in Northern Finland.
The snow is good and all, I still love it a lot, but the tricky thing is the icy roads - or walk ways like in the pic below - when they get a thin snow layer on top. You don't then really know where is slippery and where is not. No wonder the emergency rooms are busy...
While driving I don't mind it otherwise, but the slid and salt combination makes the car damn dirty. It gets dirty again in 2 km after washing.
To finish off, I am happy to tell you that the Blues made Finnish play-off history by being the first team ever to make it from positions 7-10 (after first playing the so called pitty-play-offs) to the semi-finals.
They will have a huge challenge ahead by trying to kick a strong team of JYP from Jyväskylä.
Good luck guys, you can do it!!!
