25.08.10 – The weather is changing, drastically. It was just a couple of days ago, the temperatures were in the high 80’s, I was making the most of another beautiful afternoon. The skies became overcast and a local told me, “yep, the summer’s over!” and off they went to know doubt dig out their parka from the closet. Me, being a fledgling Helsinki asukas (resident) and eternal optimist, donned my H&M pullover and went about my way.
Yesterday it poured like cats and dogs in the morning and the temperatures were in the low 60’s. Luckily, I didn’t have to take Max to school so I hung out in my apartment making the most of some downtime. I knew I wasn’t missing anything by being indoors and I spent some time reading and recharging. Soon enough I would have to head out to meet Max after school with my new umbrella and a couple of layers of clothes 😉
The weather gods must have been keeping an eye on my schedule because by the time I had to leave the sun peeked from beneath the clouds and the temperatures climbed to an acceptable mid 70’s.
The sky turned dramatic as the sun became a thermal factory. Huge cumulus clouds climbed the blue sky like fists punching there ways to the heavens.
Needless to say, I like clouds, so they were my subject of the day.
