AS DAFlys recently asked for, I will now post a couple of shots of winter here in Sastamala. Although we didn't get the blizzard they said would be coming, the view at least looks more like winter than autumn. And, as a little bonus, got some sunset in there too :-) Sunset at Rautavesi winter 2.jpg Sunset at Rautavesi winter 1.jpg Sunset at Rautavesi winter 3.jpg

Thanks, hoping we would get a bit more snow thought. But this is a promising start.

Thanks :-) It is at least partially frozen - but I wouldn't dare to take the risk and walk on ice, in case it would break

Wow,   that must be cold then,   even when it snows here the lakes rarely freeze up.

It recently was about -14 degrees Celsius (8.6 degrees Fahrenheit) here, we'll see how the temperature will change the following days...

That's not even close to the all-time record in Finland - in 1999, there was -51,5 degrees Celsius (-60,7 degrees Fahrenheit) in Kittilä, which is the second-coldest temperature measured in Europe. Luckily, it hasn't been that cold in Sastamala

I can't even start to imagine how cold that must feel.

Absolutely. I'd take a real winter anytime over an autumn that stretches itself to last nine months of the year

Can you go ice skating or is the ice too thin?

I wouldn't dare to go on the ice, the temperature has risen somewhat and there is a bridge nearby where the water keeps running. But there are some fishermen on the ice sometimes, probably more on colder days.

Ok so it’s probably not the best idea to step on the ice

At least not here nor now - it seems like most of the snow has molten away today as temperatures rose. Wonder if there even is any ice now
