Spring is about to spring

It’s almost May and at last it’s starting to look a little like spring up here in the Arctic. The roads are all clear of snow and ice by now and just couple of days ago we got the winter tyres changed for the summer ones. That’s always a sure sign of spring. Another sure sign of spring are the daily reports of people being rescued after they’ve fallen through weak ice on rivers and lakes. It’s unbelievable. I’m not even one of the locals and yet I know not to go to the ice anymore. Are these sinking local people brave or just stupid?

Spring is coming, Lapland

Today was a sunny day but the wind is still very cold. Although the end of long winter is always exciting, this time of year is my least favourite. The remaining snow looks dirty, nothing grows yet and it’s too contrasty to take any pictures. A few more weeks and things should look up.
