Belated winter

Remember I told we haven’t experienced proper winter in Turku this season? You see, the Nordic winter should be white. Well, there was some rather heavy snowfall in early January but we happened to be in Helsinki then. This all changed a couple of days ago when the winds brought a temperature drop and a serious amount of snow.





Yesterday, already a short walk downtown made you feel like a snowman. I have nothing against an occasional downfall of big fluffy snowflakes. But I could have managed without the piles now ploughed at every second street corner. I guess when something sounds too good to be true – such as an early spring – it often isn’t.

  1. That does look very cold, but lovely too. Scotland felt the tailend of that snow too this week, but we still remain snowless down here so far this winter.

    1. I would have been happy to see this one, two and three months ago but now it feels like a slap in the face. After all, it's March in a few days.

  2. You are so right. Snow has its time and place. We seem to be getting later snowfalls recently. No doubt we will have ours in march. Nevertheless your photos make it look idyllic. B x

    1. It was rather lovely but I only took a few photos because the camera started to turn wet.
