Cold spell in spring

It has been a nice couple of weeks here in Finland. The sun has been shining and almost all the snow has melted. Until today.

The land is white again. Not much of now but enough to make the land white again. You can never be sure the winter is done here. There is always at least that one setback until the winter gives up.

Usually, it hits during the mayday, when everybody is about to celebrate the spring. This year it was a couple of days late. But never the less, you can almost count on it. Sooner or later it will hit.

Just when you thought you won't need any winter apparel or its safe to change the winter tyres away. And it even feels colder than a few weeks back when the temperature was this low the last time. You got used to the warmth already.

But it's nice to have it through now. Hopefully it gets warmer again soon and there won't be another setback anymore. The last breath of winter before it fives way to the summer. Just need to live it through and hope for the best. At least it wasn't as bad yet as some years have been.
