Once more, we survived

N 60° 9.253', E 24° 53.464'

I'm not talking about the apocalypse. I'm talking about the darkness. Yesterday was the shortest day of the year. In Helsinki time between sunrise and sunset was a total of 5 hours and 49 minutes.

Today I actually saw the sun for the first time in a couple of weeks, there really was a large patch of blue sky visible. That was something after all that snowing.

But I don't feel like winner yet. There's still a long and cold winter ahead of us. Sure there's going to be more light, but according to the statistics January and February are the coldest months...

Finnish winter before the sea is covered by ice.
