Our kitchen window on the first day of winter.
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!

Got more snow than me and I am about 90 miles staight north of ya in Lulea.
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.

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.

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