I'm a little late and everybody else has been out enjoying the sunshine and winter on both Saturday and Sunday. I was away for most of the weekend and got home just in time to start riding one hour before sunset. By that time the weather had turned cloudy and non-photogenic, but I still think I'm entitled to a blog post about the long awaited winter.
Looking out right now, it feels almost unreal that I tested my new kayak just one week ago. We now have snow and it feels like winter with a temperature of -12C (10F). As I mentioned, I started a short two hour ride about one hour before sunset.
The fall misery is covered with fresh snow.
Lake Littoinen is covered with ice, though it is only strong enough for small animals.
