They are breaking this ice PETTERI ... but when this ice is now 15 cm? I hope, it`s bether, they goes on land .......

I heard, icefishing is also a hobby from the men of Suomi . There are also nets under the ice , is that allright ?

Best MANY Greetings , ROMINA

Romina, I´m almost certain that these swans flew to open waters in the South just in time (at least I hope so). But I think it´s mindboggling to notice that the 15 cm cover of ice was born in just a week! Icefishers, yes, and lots of them - but for some reason men only. And I saw that some nets were already put under the ice.

Cheers, Petteri
