November is now past us. It was one of the absolutely warmest Novembers in Finland in the history of recorded temperatures. We had a lot of rain and grey weather and almost no signs of the coming winter except the shortening days. The contrast against last year is enormous. This is what December 4th looked like last year:
As a contrast the following pictures are from today, December 3rd. The temperature yesterday around sunset was 8°C. During the night the temperature went below freezing, so maybe there is some hope after all. The weather forecast also shows colder temperatures next weekend, though a lot of rainfall is forecasted before that.
Yes, this picture was actually taken today.
My Fargo has mainly seen commuting service lately, due to the wet weather having turned the forest trails into mud.
The afternoon was spent outside with the kids, until it started to rain around sunset.
Hopefully we get snow and colder temperatures soon...
