HAGL/ HAIL


 I går kom det en kraftig haglbyge med hagl så store som erter. Yesterday there was a heavy hailstorm with hail as big as peas.


Det  så ut som bakken var dekket av isoporkuler :) It looked like the ground was covered with polystyrene balls :)

PRIMSTAV -  SOMMERDAG - SUMMERDAY

I følge den gamle norske kalenderen Primstaven er det første sommerdag i dag 14.april. Da ble primstaven snudd fra vintersiden til sommersiden. Symbolet for Sommerdagen er ofte et tre eller en gren. I gammel tid var det mange værtegn knyttet til slike dager. 
"Gamle værtegn:
Slik været er denne dagen, blir det hele sommeren. Sol og stille vær varsler en fin sommer, mens regn og vind varsler en uværssommer. Kommer det snø sommerdagen, vil det komme snø syv ganger til før våren. Og – om det skulle være så galt; så tett som snøen faller, så tett vil det bli med insekter til sommeren."
According to the old Norwegian calendar Primstaven, it is the first Summer day today 14. April. Then the Primstav was turned from the winter side to the summer side. The symbol of Summer Day is often a tree or a branch. In ancient times, there were many weather signs associated with such days.
"Old weather signs:
The way the weather is this day, it will be all summer. Sun and calm weather herald a fine summer, while rain and wind herald a stormy summer. If it snows on the Summer day, it will snow seven more times before spring. And - if it were to be so wrong; as close as the snow falls, so close will it be with insects for the summer. "


I dag er det flott vær, sola skinner og lite vind, så det lover bra for sommeren! Det var bra det ikke er slik været var i går 😃
Jeg skrev mer om Primstaven i et innlegg HER.
Today it is beautiful sunny weather, and there is little wind, so it sounds well for the summer! It is good it's not like the weather was yesterday 😃

  1. Here it is freezing each night. The flowers of orchard trees are burnt and the crops won’t be normal this year. I hope you read right and that Summer will be normal.
    I wish you a good day.

  3. That must have been some hail storm! I hope your garden didn't suffer too much, though I have watched nature make remarkable recoveries after being battered with hail. Enjoy your warm weather :)

  4. Første sommerdag og hagl, ikke noe nytt i det, siden våren kan være lunefull. Husker pappa og jeg gikk på ski 1.mai et år, og det har også snødd på bursdagen min først i juni. Håper dere får en fin og varm sommer. Her går vi 'vinter' i møte, uten snø, heldigvis!

  5. That was an impressive amount of hail. I hope none of your plants were damaged. Here we had a most beautiful sunny day so if this is what we get all summer it will be lovely.

  6. I love weather lore! What a unique tradition with the board being turned over for summer! You got so much hail! I hope it did not knock down any plants.

  7. I get the biggest kick out of hubby, Kjell (from Toensberg), who says there are two Summers in Norway: one white and one green.

    1. Ha-ha, I think he is right :) I have also heard from a Somali friend, that African refugees who come to Norway say that it is one white and one green winter here. And the green one is worst because then they do not heat in the houses :)
