SNOW IN SWEDEN


This news and the photo I have just found in Finnish newspaper HELSINGIN SANOMAT online. I was quite surprised. Well, it is June, summer is about to start within a week. Here, we have extremely hot and damp weather. Sharp sun and all that heaviness. But I am not sure such snow is totally normal summer event either; despite it is North we talk about. What is going on with this climate, eh? Now I translate the news from Finnish...

Today, on Thursday, it was snowing heavily in Mid-Sweden. Just a few days earlier in the region there was 30 degrees heat. In Härjedalen close to Norwegian border it has fallen about ten centimeters of snow, and the temperature has dropped close to zero. Also in the south region snow has piled up into many centies.

Hei minäkin näin tuon uutisen! Täällä Etelä-Suomessa on ainakin niin lämmintä, ettei ole mitään vaaraa lumisateesta :)

Keskustelin tänään tuttavani kanssa netissä - nyt hän opiskelee Helsingissä. Se tuttavani sanoi, että tänään satoi ja oli taas melko kylmä, 13 astetta. Ehkä lumikin tulee Suomeen ennen juhannusta. :)

Hu, sounds good to me right now. Čedalje bolj se nagibam k mrazu, ko ga primerjam z vročino. Pa nikoli nisem marala mraza, zima mi je bila samo lepa, nikoli pa prijetna, ker sem rada na toplem. Vendar v taki vročini, ki nam jo Zemlja obljublja v prihodnjih letih, ne bi živela. Boste hodili na kavice z mano v Skandinavijo. ;)

With pleasure! :) Hja, bomo videli, kako se bo vreme obrnilo. :S Bojim se, da se zna tudi daljni veliki Sever segreti... Slišala sem, da se polarni medvedje na Arktiki že soočajo s težavami globalnega segrevanja.

Lani avgusta je bilo v Helsinkih 30 stopinj. Leta 2003 je bilo na Islandiji 25 stopinj - in to je bilo že pretoplo za islandsko poletje.

Well, I just hope things are not totally fucked up already...
