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.
