Winter and global warming
« on: October 19, 2014, 09:52:06 PM »
Before snow there seems to be longer fall time on arctic regions. It's not nice, because it's raining water (not snow) and temperature is near zero which is cold enough. And it's dark, because there is no snow.

The only thing that keeps me warm is fantasizing about Kristen Stewart.

Well at least we got a snowy winter, but still January and February are the worst, because they are the coldest months in arctic. It's not been much under -20C, but I hate it anyway. Nice thing is that I got a seriously bad ass winter jacket which this time was actually designed for winter, unlike my previous jacket.

The theory is that during these cold months people stay inside and start to get weird ideas like writing a roguelike game.

What lot of people don't realize is that northern part of Finland is actually in the arctic region. Not a joke. Check it out. Since Finland is a tall country there is also lot of difference in weather. A rule is that when you go inland there is more snow and when you go north it's colder. It can be 0C in Helsinki while in central (where I live) Finland it's -20 and in north it can be as cold as -40 at the same time!

If you only visit Helsinki like many foreigners do it doesn't give a good picture what it is like in Finland. Helsinki is one of coastal cities that historically were built by swedes and largely occupied by them, even to this day. A little known fact is that Finland was part of Sweden for 600 years. Yes, that was not a typo. Six hundred years. And swedes occupied coasts, because it was not that difficult place to live, because it was warm and there was much less snow.
