Out of the sauna, into the fire

We have just returned from our usual summer trip to Finland. People keep telling me that the Finnish summer is cool and rainy, but I simply don’t believe it. Every single time I go to Finland in the summer, it is sunny and hot, and this was no exception. Temperatures were consistently in the low to mid 80s F, and we saw only a few passing showers (although some of them came with impressive thunder and lightning shows). We came home to temperatures near 90 F, half the lawn parched brown, and an oppressive humidity hanging in the air but not coming down.

There will be more details soon, but the highlights include the beautiful Finnish landscape under the midnight sun, excessive amounts of good food, and dear sweet lord in heaven where did all these children come from all of a sudden?!

    Hee hee. Where did the new masthead photo come from? Is that a Finnish shore? Very pretty.

    The picture is from the shores of Lake Oulu in northern Finland.
