Here in Finland, we know a thing or two about snow. In northern Finland there are snow flurries already in September, and snow on the ground from November until May. So, as the snow lies thick on the roof and a warm fire burns in the tile stove, we've had time to think of a few things to do in the winter. Poke your nose out the door. The air is dry, cold and fresh. The spruce branches are heavy with snow; the skis are leaning against the wall. What will you do today? Ski, go for a dogsled ride, go ice fishing? The winter awaits.
