    Central Finland. Last thursday temps went below zero Centigrade and friday to sunday we got snow. On saturday the temperature plummeted even further the trend continuing on sunday and today being the coldest. Last thursday the lakes were almost completely unfrozen. At the moment it's hovering around -15F. Gotta ride to the lakes tomorrow to see what it looks and feels like then. Temperature's supposed to be a bit more gentle also, maybe as high as 10F but with increased wind chill perhaps snowfall.

    It's gonna be awesome.

    Awesome is not the word I'd use for the temps, but that picture is awesome. I've never seen anything like that!

    Ice crystals were gone today. They'd evolved into large Koch's snowflakes and by tomorrow it'll probably look like ordinary snow.
    There's some boiling water still running free downstream from the powerplant though.



    Still at -6F and getting colder again. Wind chill was a bit harsh on a bike btw.

    These "numbers" you people keep throwing out: "-8F" and "-6F"... See, in my mind, these "numbers" don't even make sense. I can't even comprehend them. It's like, I know what they mean. But I just can't wrap my head around them.






    Sorry, I had to go put on a sweater after thinking more about those "numbers". Thanks for sharing the great photos. Stay safe and stay warm out there!

    I'd love to know the temp accounting for wind chill. -6F is hard to conceptualize without any personal experience to reference (I'm in New Jersey, US). It's interesting that with that powerplant upstream, even at such low temperatures the river's not iced over.

    The powerplant's quite close behind me in that shot, less than half a mile. The currents there are so strong I wouldn't dream of swimming in there even at summer, I'd get pulled under for sure as I'm not that good a swimmer. That's why it isn't frozen over yet. Winter here is less than a week old and looking like a real winter already!

    I checked the wind chill of today from an app and guess what... -22F!!! NO WONDER my face got all prickly and numb when cycling (very slowly) against the wind. Damn. Sure made me take all the possible trails I could to get some tree coverage.

    Snow melted so I chose the Niner today for a quickie.

    Just stepped off about 5 minutes ago :-)

    Shower time!

    CONQUERED!

    I like to hug trees at FULL SPEED!
