Our temperature suddenly and violently dropped from high 16 degrees Celsius to 2 degrees, less than a week ago. A few days later the strong wind died out and the temperature rose to about 5 degrees, so now we live in a tepid environment that is as calm as cotton. Still, what can you expect a few Israel lengths west-northwest of our neighbours in Murmansk. Nevertheless, our society is pleasantly lukewarm, neither hot and brainless conflicts nor any sight of cold labour markets. Unless you look over the horizon or belong to the very few who sign up for service in a certain place (that is more or less stirred up by strange Americans and others).
