Ice Cream Weather
Remember that lovely Saturday when it was really warm and sunny in Helsinki? The sky was clear (as it often is in late winter and spring), and it felt like summer (a bit early for this time of year). It was almost 20°C (68 °F) and the sun was shining. Remember that?
I think it was last Saturday. I know: that was ages ago (or so it feels), long before it started raining and got all murky and cold again. But for one glorious day we all thought that Mother Nature had decided to skip over spring, and summer had arrived.
Of course, it was just a preview. You know, ‘coming soon to you neighbourhood‘ (or at some point in the more or less distant future).
However, in Finland we learn early that whenever you have the chance to take your summer clothes for a spin, you should take it. Because who knows when the next opportunity arises.
OK, maybe I’m exaggerating. I do remember complaining (repeatedly) about the heat wave last summer, and I have plenty of childhood memories of warm summers.
But it’s spring now, and we have a long way to go before summer (well, a few weeks, but it feels like a long way to go). So, would you mind if I enjoyed this little preview of summer just a bit longer? Come on, Mother Nature, what do you think, could we have some more of that? Please?
