Transports on strike!

Today's issue here in Finland is the strike in the field of transportation that began yesterday.
To begin with it only involves some of the long distance coaches and some bus-companies and the sanitary workers, so how are we going to get our garbage collected and the bins emptied ? The bins will be full soon but at least the weather is cold so the bins won't be smelling too soon, even if left standing for long...

At least the Finns are not as strike-prone as some other European countries, with often weeks long banking-strikes or metros and trains standing still every other day. If the strike keeps on the supermarkets will soon run of some groceries and the filling-stations run out of petrol so we hope that this will not be for very long, they say at least until Wednesday.

So if you don't have your own car, hire one and don't empty your garbage.
And get some milk now for your tea!
