This is how much sunshine we have had lately. The picture kind of says it all. The past winter has been incredibly grey and dark, really, not only in my imagination. I saw this piece of comparative statistics on Suomen Kuvalehti weekly magazine today. The data is from the Finnish Meteorological Institute.
As for us Finns being a tad tired in the winter months, I rest my case. If you want to do the math, calculate how many days there were between 1 December and 17 February and then divide 50 (!) hours of sunshine with the number of days. It ain’t much.
♣ In the meantime: If you have not yet seen the Finns party leader Timo Soini on BBC HARDtalk trying to avoid the question of racism, check it out.
