The weather

Regardless of what everyone thinks, I am surviving the weather. I’m finally starting to adjust to 0˚C being “normal,” although I do prefer to be inside. The problem is that I’ve found that following an ice hockey team around doesn’t necessarily mean that inside is any warmer than outside. I understand why the vending machines in the lobby of the ice rink consists of kaako (hot chocolate) and coffee (don’t know the Finnish word since I still don’t drink it). What I don’t understand is the cold candy bar machine and the ice cream machine. Who’s bright ideas were these? Maybe they sell well in the summer, or maybe all these crazy ice hockey players are much more cold blooded than I am.

Today it has finally gotten cold enough that this mist is really snow. I’m actually looking forward to snow. If it is going to be cold, I’d rather it be snowing than raining. Thanks to Ryan, you can all see what I look like in the cold. The picture is from Helsinki.
