    Not enough for a proper ride in the pulka, I gather?

    It is enough, actually! I spent an hour tobogganing with the 5-y-os earlier, and then I sent the 10-y-os out on their own. Great fun!

    Oohh… pretty.

    I was driving in Melbourne yesterday on roads that were blanketed in white – hail stones. (Scary, Melbournians are not used to icy roads and don’t make any allowances for it. Heck, most of them have forgotten what wet roads are like!) As we headed NW into the Macedon Ranges there was also slushy snow. That’s the first snow I’ve seen this year, and it’s almost summer here.

    Grrlscientist wanted to go birding whilst she was in Finland, so a friend took us out to Kirkonummi. Views like this have changed her perception of the snow.

    Grrlscientist is a New Yorker. In the late 70s the city had huge snowfall. But things may be different there now.

    Being a botanist and forest pathologist, the first thing I noticed was the Pelargonium sp. in the window and the all too healthy trees in the background. And only after that I saw the snow 🙂

    Here in Uppsala there’s about 3-4 inches of snow. Perfect for a pulka ride!
