Ringroad 1, 14:15
Overnight the temperature rose and rain came down heavily. This morning I was shocked when I looked out of the window. The snow had almost all gone again, and there were large puddles everywhere.
I contemplated going for a walk but a trip to the compost put me off. The pavements seemed to be a deadly mixture of thin sheets of ice under puddles.
At 14:00 we collected Naa from Puotila station, and now we are driving to Pakila. The sky is a uniform grey and there is a thick mist in the air. Everything more than thirty metres away looks as though it is in monochrome. This will continue for the rest of the day.
Later I will check the door on the back shed which apparently opened itself the other day. I will also sweep away some of the puddles on the path before they turn into ice sheets overnight.
