Dark and warm November

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.

Thus, the month has been spent in working — and fortunately also by packing to our anniversary trip to Mauritius, on December 4th. More about that later.
