Not good. Half of the potato crop is under water. The majority of potatoes is grown here on the West coast as is a lot of other crops. It's in fact known as the granary of Finland. Or was known... damned.gif

The other day when we mentioned it was raining again, we weren't joking. If this keeps up, things are going to get very dicey.

Yeah it's been raining quite a bit here too but nearly as much as a bit further south. I don't think we've strayed outside the realm of normalcy regarding rain this fall, but there are some extreme local variations.


Quote:"Between Thursday evening and Sunday evening close to 100 millimetres of rain was registered. Judging from weather radar, it's possible that in some localities over 100 millemetres fell during these days, that's nearly two months' precipitation," says Hellinen.

The average monthly rainfall for October and November is around 60 millimetres.

However, Hellinen points out that the all-time record in Finland is around 200 millimetres during a single 24-hour period.

Back in 2004 my dad measured 240 mm of rain over a weekend. damned.gif Thank goodness our cabin is up on a hill because we were surrounded by water. uhoh.gif

On a serious note stay safe.

I went for a ride in an automobile the other day, passed fields and fields of old dying corn that was never harvested, Before I saw how far spread the damage had gone, I thought, naively... it was just a few of the local fields I pass when going out walking. Also heard that local potato crop was a bust, for every row of spuds only a few sacks worth were worth keeping and of course to stop the spread of rot, they were hand picked.

We have dry and a wet season here. The wet season should begin in the third week of September and last until the second week of March. For the last 3 years the earliest it started - a few Drops - was in The last few days of December! The average rain fall is down 67% in 3 years!

I note that many crops around the world have been suffering from extreme weather conditions and therefore the yield is very low.

Hang on to your hats Ladies and Gentleman it's gonna be a bumpy ride for a while. damned.gif

Vera bumpy. People get awfully grumpy when they can no longer afford to eat. The elites are in their zombie bunkers at that point.
