It's snowing!

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.
Well, I trust the summer will come eventually and I am glad we can enjoy the winter fun until then. The colder the winter, the warmer the summer will be as the average temperature won't change that much from year to year!

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!!!
