Everything we find so disturbing

The photographs were taken at Oittaa on February 14th.

This morning while commuting by bicycle I had a puncture in the rear tire at half-way to work. I changed a new inner tube to the bicycle, but soon I got a new puncture, and had to leave to bicycle and commute by bus. Temperature was -1 °C, and fingers got quite cold when changing the inner tube, so I wasn't careful enough and didn't spot the sharp thing that had got inside the tire causing the puncture.

I'm planning to install summer tires to the bicycle during the weekend, and do some other repairs. For the next week the 10-day forecast promises quite warm and reasonably dry weather.
