Clearly I wasn’t the only one who’d been trespassing in the times gone by. The place was riddled with old clothes, one or two helmets, and other remains of people who’d stayed there after the fire had done its work. Of course destruction of this type is often followed by additional “vandalism”, since the place is going to be taken down / renovated anyway, it apparently doesn’t matter if you don’t respect other people’s property. Graffiti and other forms of “art” were found throughout the place.
One thing that caught my eye was something I could use for  one of my little projects:

It’s probably not a good idea to publicly confess this, but owwell… It seems that I got away with it this time.
But you know… The best pictures usually come from places where you’re not supposed to be at a certain time. I got some funky pictures in this place. It’s an old abandoned farm house, destroyed by fire for the biggest part (and I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a collapse-danger), but very photogenic.

Check this out:

It’s getting cold. Awhile back it was cold for a couple of days, with a bit of snow that disappeared pretty much instantly. But now temperature’s really dropping and staying down. Driving to the in-laws for dinner on Sunday I could really notice it was slippery. It was a tad bit moist in the air and the temperature was just around 0°C (32F), maybe a bit below. They call it black ice here, because you can’t really see any ice on the road, but it’s really treacherous. This is just around the time that everyone gets surprised by it. Even if you’d think Fins would be aware of the dangers, because they face it every single year, but every single year people underestimate it or don’t expect it and accidents happen.
I got home safe. With lunch *grins*
Best is just to stay at home and light up the fire place…
