Snowy but less freezing

The temperature has risen some 15 degrees and is closing in on 0C. It's still a couple degrees below, so whatever rain comes down (and today is seriously does) is still snow. Almost perfect snowman snow, but we don't have any snowman makers in the household anymore. Teens couldn't care less.

Yesterday was a nice day for a little bit longer walk outside. Not so cold anymore, only slight wind, no snowfall and the world still pretty with the snow heavy on tree branches. So out we went, to a dog park where the dogs had a jolly good time running and playing around and getting their snouts all snowy and icy, while I was shooting some photos of them and snow and icycles hanging from the house next to the park.

Winter wonderland

The Siberian winter hit Fnland. Temperature dipped to -25C even here in Helsinki, and a whole lot lower up north. Our world froze and then it started to snow. Now it's "only" -13C - which felt almost warm after the -25! - and snow has been fluttering down in a slow but steady pace. We have a winter wonderland here now.
