This blog is the result and the starting point of a work began on september 2008.
I wish that you will add new words or descriptions and help me to make a good picture of finnish language and environment.

Tykky or tykkylumi means a crown snow-load. It doesn't mean the normal snow which is snowing on tree branches. There is both snow and ice in tykky. There a two different kinds of tykky: huurretykky (tykky caused by hard rime) and nuoskatykky (tykky caused by wet snow). Tykky is the most common (and most beautiful) in Lapland where water vapour condensates from the air on tree branches.
However, in Päijät-Häme tykkylumi refers only to the heavy snow that sticks on branches and is often heavy enough to make the trees fall.
