19.11.10 – The days are growing shorter and the snow is starting to stick. I guess this is it. Here comes my first Finnish winter. The pictures may not be the best but you can be pretty dang sure you’re going to see lots of snow pictures coming up. The snow we received lately seemed to be a “tipping point” because there was an increased amount of chatter with the locals, the ones that know. Most of the people in my class are in a relationship with a Finn, husbands, girlfriends, etc. When I got to the class almost everyone had a story about how “Pekka told me to leave 1 hour early” or “Anna told me I had to wear my ugly waterproof boots.” Jaana even called me to make sure Max didn’t go out in his tennis shoes, “He will die!” It’s like they’re gearing up for war!
