Switching Focus

And let there be light! Finally spring is here in Finland, the snow is melting, it's a warm 2 degrees Celsius at night and 7 degrees at day, and the days are getting brighter. There was the switch over to the daylight savings hour last Sunday, and now all of a sudden the nights are quite bright up until 9 pm :|.

There is even a midnight sun sometimes visible in Finland in midsummer. It is a phenomenon occurring in latitudes north and nearby to the south of the Arctic Circle and south and nearby to the north of the Antarctic Circle where the sun remains visible at the local midnight. Given fair weather, the sun is visible for a continuous 24 hours, mostly north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle. [source].

Anyways, it's becoming brighter, happier, warmer and livelier [with the concerts in Turku, and the girls dressing down in general ;)]. Here's my watch at 7:40 pm, and the sun still bright behind those clouds [i tried to be a bit artistic here, but the watch spoiled it].
