Uhh, about using the fur. Yes it's not nice to breed the animals like minks or whatever just for furs, esp in bad conditions. The Finns want to ban the fur farming with a popular initiative, wonder if it can pass, I'll keep you posted. There seem to be many Finnish ladies opposed to fur farming.
Edit: I have a warm coat now too so I'm fine till -20 C, under that I probably wouldn't go out anyways.
Here it's worse than any Siberia because of the humidity from the sea (and constant pretty strong winds).
