❄️ The biggest snowfall anybody can remeber came on 7th – 10th of Januar 2017, the snow closed the island for days. ❄️ We got help from the mainland, luckely the ferries were operating. My mom could not walk out for 11 days, my car was locked in as many days. Some people was snowed in and were picked up by helicopter. ❄️

❄️⛄️❄️ 11th of Jabuary 2017 is the correct date ❄️☃️❄️

🌞🌈🌞 It takes both sun and rain
to make a rainbow 🌈🌞🌈

338 mm of rain is the highest I have measured, it was in March 2015.

❄️☃️❣❄️

July is the only month I have measured without rain! 

Measurement for January 2017 might not be correct, due to heavy snow covering my measuring glass for many days!

☔️💧 2016 going 2017 – it was raining all the time 💦☔️

160409-032I have no good photos of rain, but this one is special,
just before a small rainstorm came,
and just before the beautiful Jerusalem Torne tree fell!!!
It was before Easter 2016, I think.
