It has been a very warm November here in Finland. Of course, warmness is a relative concept — +5-10C is not considered warm in most of the countries, but for us it is a very high temperature for November.
It has also rained a lot. During the past two years, the rain has fallen as snow — and we would now have probably 30-50 centimeters of snow, if the temperature had been lower.
This has caused the month to be extremely dark. Going to kindergarten and work happens in twilight and wet black tarmac sucks all light when driving. The difference between this and snowy landscape couldn’t be bigger.
Oct 31 Life, Travelling:
Aapo had a couple of days mid-term holiday in the middle of October, and we got surprisingly inexpensive trip to London, including flight tickets and accommodation, so we popped over to spend four days — Thursday to Sunday — there.
Sep 30 Life, Technology, Travelling:
I spent a week in Prague attending, sponsoring, and volunteering in DrupalCon, and have finally recovered from the event.
Aug 25 Technology, Travelling:
I spent last Friday in Tallinn, enjoying the sessions at DrupalCamp Baltics. I’m a bit biased to say that the event was a blast — I’m also part of the organising committeen.
