Winter Draws On!!

Finland has a very accessible road camera network as you will see at  ..  http://www.tiehallinto.fi/alk/english/frames/kelikamerat-frame.html
Click on "Eastern Finland" on the country map on the left and then on eastern-most camera ...    first snow of the season.  
EDIT: didn't think about this...  if you open the above link an hour or two after I posted it the snow will have probably melted; live camera you know!  Grin

  12:23 BST....Just checked Finland TIE70 camera,  shows clean tarmac, and clean snow on the edges and central reservation

Edit.... You may be interested to know that in Northern Lapland , a camera , North of Utsjoki, (TIE970) is showing no snow whatsoever...!

Re: Winter Draws On!!

12:37 TIE 20 def show signs of snow covering the road.
Did a random survey of 50 camera's counted a total of 9 cars, do they blank the traffic out, or is there little traffic.
What a neat use of technology

See my edit on original message Shutter!  Smiley  I forgot that snow melts!!!
Apparently the snow is about two weeks earlier this year than average.
The time-lapse video is good in this link..  http://weather.cs.uit.no/

Yes, I know.... what I was pointing out, was that the camera I checked in Lapland, (some 500 miles north of the one you quoted) showed no snow.... yet it is much more northerly !. Wink

Re: Winter Draws On!!

For that to work the title would have to have been 'Winter drawers on' anyway.
