We're having an evil wind storm. Temps are -3c (27f) and wind blowing 21 meters per second (47 mph)
According to yle.fi
Quote:Sweden and Norway were hit by a storm, dubbed Staffan, on Christmas Day. The system has moved into Finland, albeit in diminished form. Driving conditions will be bad and power has been cut from some 7,000 homes.
[...]
Windspeeds will pick up to record figures in Eastern Finland on Saturday evening.
It's truly evil outside. Feels like -14 c (about 7 f) and nobody is used to this as it has hovered at freezing or above the last month.
Awfully cold to be without power, and the winds are going to be increasing as the day goes by.

They're actually not so bad. It's not the temps that bother folks, it's the winds. Brrr...

Same way Octo and I scored our cruise ship. We hated removing the bodies with pitchforks, but other than than that, it was fun.
