Word of the Day Wednesday

Sticking with this week’s featured country of Norway, we will feature a word which really has no English equivalent.  As you can imagine, Norwegians have lots of words for snow and different kinds of it since they see it a lot!  So, today’s word is:

Skare – a thin, but sharp layer of snow that melted and then froze on top of the other snow

To learn a few more of these untranslatable snow words (to divert you from the hot weather here in the Mid-Atlantic), you can view the original post here
