Yurts In Lapland

Finland YurtsHi Rob and Ratna!
Greetings from Juva. I am right now at my yurt site to clean up for summer.
I aYurt In Finlandm happy to report that the yurt survived the cold and snowy winter very well. The weather conditions varied a lot. In the beginning
(November and December) it was very humid and rainy. After that, lots of snow and very cold (sometimes almost -30 centigrade)
 
I visited the place once a month for a few days  to check that things are all right. Everything was and is. Once, in March, there was about 30 cm of heavy snow on the roof. The roof held nicely, but of course I removed it from the roof immediately after I arrived. 
 
Also, there was a furious storm right after Christmas. The wind broke a 30 meter spruce in half and the top (15 meters) fell right beside
 
the yurt (six meters from the wall). I was not here when this happened, but learned about it afterwards. The yurt itself was not effected by the storm, though.
All the best
