Inspiration from Ailsa, wheresmybackpack.com
Well let me put it this way, there‘s always liquid of some form here. It seems to be raining all the time with different kinds of liquids.
In spring and summer, we say – sataa vettä, meaning it’s raining water
Then in winter – sataa lunta, meaning raining snow
and then in autumn (now) – sataa vettä / sataa lunta / mostly sataa räntää, meaning sleet (mixture of rain and snow).
The most liquid we have encountered thus far was in last spring. Because of the warm temperatures, the snow melted at a faster, thus causing floods.
For those of us who live next to the river, it meant that we had to rely on boats to get by – it was like living on the island. We had to use canoes to the main road where we had parked the cars, if wanted to get anywhere.
OK, enough of the wetness, it would be nice to have some sunshine for a change. Wishing you a dry and beautiful weekend.
