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?
