Winter is not coming after all. We are now running on the sixth day of the new year and we still cannot see much of a sign for a winter. Temperature is still quite high for this time of a year and no sign of snow.

The text messages are still not travelling between Finland and China, phone calls are back to normal now. Internet is slowly recovering, it is now possible to access some sites in China again and people in China are able to access for example Windows Live Messenger network. According to the recent reports, the recovery will take still pretty much all January. The Wikipedia has been again quite quick on getting up to day and already has an article about 2006 Hengchun earthquake and also has details about the damaged communication cables.
