Январь в этом году, конечно, суперстранный! Даже на финском курорте Исо-Сьёте шел дождь! Вот уж чего я там точно не ожидала ((( Но снег там все-таки был, ура! Ну а здесь вы видите поздний рассвет на финским лесом в один из ярких солнечных дней.
It was really icy 'cos it was raining the day before I could walk in the snow without falling through the knee-deep snow like Legolas Greenleaf
These were not traces of skis, these were traces of a snowmobiles. The ski tracks at the resort were laid with the help of a special snowmobile, and they are very even and clear.
Your weather is weird too! I don't know what is it - global warming or global warning to all of us, but this season winter gone mad for sure!
For examle: On Monday, it was so warm in the forest that it smelled of mushrooms. On Tuesday, it poured all day like a bucket. Today we had a blizzard, and everything is covered with snow right now. And weather forecasters promise us a new warming on Sunday! We are all damned!!!
I remember watching an educational type program a few years ago on the years Europe had no summer
Oh, I read about it too. "The year 1816 is known as the Year Without a Summer (also the Poverty Year and Eighteen Hundred and Froze To Death)", here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_Without_a_Summer
Our forecasters are not sure about the weather anymore. At the end of February I have to take part in important skiing competitions. Now none of us knows whether we will run skiing or on foot
well we have a triathlon where you and others start by bicycling up a mountain, then switch to ski's then you ski back down the mountain ..then run 20 kilometers till you reach the "Notmor tavern" where I will serve you whatever beverage your heart desires...
Are you kidding, are you? О_О Do you really have that kind of triathlon? And you've got the tavern? That'll be great, really!
