The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on October 8th.
We got snow today. In the morning there was 1 cm of snow, and 10 km/h of headwind, but it wasn't too heavy to ride the bicycle. In the afternoon there was 4-6 cm of snow, some of it melting, some of it compacted and turning into ice, with bumps and ridges. The wind direction had changed so that there was headwind part of the way. It took over one hour to ride 17 km from work to home.
