Swimming In Lake Kalliojärvi Watching Daredevils

in #summer2 years ago (edited)

Lake Kalliojärvi is a small lake in the small town of Orimattila about 15 south of where I live. That rock used to have a dance hall at the top and a large water slide many decades ago. It's still a popular place to dive at. You can imagine how many drunken guys must have have jumped off the cliff (with or without their clothes on) to impress someone or to win a bet back in the day.

There goes one. His buddy is already in the water.

I was at a public beach on the opposite side of the lake. I took the photos after I was done swimming and on my way to my car.

Today was the last day of the heat wave. An all time record at Kaisaniemi weather station in central Helsinki was set today. The station has continuous records from 1844. The new record was 33.2 C. Helsinki is not usually the hottest place in the country because it's by the sea. The national all time record remains 37.2 C in Liperi at Joensuu airport in North Karelia near the Russian border. The maximum temperature in Lahti was 30 C today.

I'm guessing 40 C will be exceeded in my lifetime if I'm going to have an average lifespan.

Aha! It’s 32 degree Celsius here yesterday! It’s quite hot for our standard!

Please only use the STEM tag for stem-related content.

Giving the weather report for a bunch of pictures of people diving in a lake does not make it STEM-related.

That was NOT a weather report for a bunch of pictures diving in a lake. You'd know that if you'd actually have read the post. But I'll steer clear of your tag in the future.

I looked over the entire post, the jumping in the lake has nothing to do with STEM, the weather report is the only thing that remotely comes close to STEM which it doesn't.

There is nothing wrong with the post, it just has nothing to do with STEM.

Ok. If I ever post anything about meteorology, be it in a post specifically about it or not, I will not use the tag, just to be on the safe side.

Oh grow up. If you think this has anything to do with meteorology then you have no grounds to write about meteorology.
