subzero-o-o-h

I’m not normally one of those brutal bores who only ever discuss the weather… but today, I’m adding wrinkles to my forehead about the radiator liquid in my car.
Ja, today, during the coldest day of the year, it will dip below -40 in most of Finland. Clatter, o clatter, teeth!
Luckily, here in the tropics of Finland [Karis], the thermometer is hovering around the mere mark of -25. Of course, this is still quite enough, thank you very much. I don’t even want to know how much a new Porsche radiator costs.

By the by, if you want to impress someone at a cocktail party, you must know that the coldest it’s ever been in Finland was during the very recent but dark January of 1999, when a cool -51,8 was measured in some cornhole of Lapland.

Is this the last stand of nature, before she buckles under pressure?

  1. Just wait odd 100 years and the climate change will turn our subarctic periphery into the new ibiza. In the meantime, I’m rather happy living in Mittel Europa where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

  2. Yeah… it’s just that I don’t want to wait that long. Funny; I am certainly not an advocate of global warming, yet… a rather large part of me would not mind lappin’ it up in the sun, living the sweet life all year round on Neo-Ibiza, ie the ever-glorious Nauvo.

  3. Mmmm. Sweet summer of the Southern Hemisphere… altho, all is not gold that shines, as I recall from my burnt skin – from sitting a miniscule 15 minutes unprotected in the sun – you have no ozone layer – which means you have to walk around wearing cream cheese all the time.
