Default The endless winter is gone

It's allways a surprise how jumping from winter time to summer time here in Finland efects your brain. The pleasent feeling that there is still light outside even it's allready 8pm. We have a so long dark period. It starts in september october. It's even longer than the freezing period. It's hard to consentrate on something longlasting even it is a nice thing to work on. The main focus is to keep the house warm. Now we are one step from easter I start feeling I can hang the winter in the closet and forget it there. It's not anymore of an importance to close the door behind you. To morrow we should have +14C and on sunday +16C. The warmth and the light makes me feel that I get new energy to do things, even cleaning my shop.
Now I have that feeling I can start making those things I asked for when it was still winter. Thank's again to all of you who have advised and helped me in my questions or problems. Thank's to all of you who have given me hints and tips were I can find those things that have troubeled me.

Happy easter to all of you!

Summer, 14 to 16°C, why, that's our winter!! Any morning where the outside thermometer reads below 17°C when I get out of bed gets the central heating on straight away. I doubt that I would survive a single winter in Finland!

Hey, Esko! Happy Easter to you, and all the other Members.

Interesting that you said "Summer", not Spring? You don't get four distinct seasons in Finland?!

On the contrary, we have very clear four distinct seasons. I must have written something really foolish. I try to explain. I'm shure you can say this in one frase, I can't. Finland is located far from central Europa. We are in the northeast corner. Geograficaly Finland is betwene Arctic Ocean and The Baltic sea and Sweden and Russia. At winter time our timezone is +2h gmt but in the "summertime" only +1h gmt. The summertime lasts about 6month. The summertime doesn't mean that our summer lasts 6 month. Our situation has something to do with it, I guess B-)

Harry, we have only one month without night frost. Its july. So its not yet summer. I guess our record heat is something like +33C. The Summer months here is june, july and august. Our winter can last 8 months, upnorth even longer. Our summer is often very beautyful and our girls too.

winter is still here in force till the end of next month and for little bit there after I hope......
snowed 4??? 5??? times this month so far w/ a total of around 2' give or take and single digit temps...
I live where I do because winter is the best... 9 easy, maybe 10 months of winter a year is the way to go...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Nice. Better to have a real 8-9 month winter than 4-6 months of +-5C. I have tried both and I hate the freezing/melting climate. I'm with you sticky : )

It's still winter here too. Tomorrow is supposed to be the end of it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm happy for you Charles. At some point of winter you get quite tired of it.

This last winter started a month early so everyone had had enough back in February. And then it went down to -39C on March 1st so we knew it wasn't even close to being over by then.
