Based on the daily weather observations of the Finnish Meteorogical Institute, this book lists the daily amount of rain on the Finnish island of Hailuoto since my birthday. The observation data has been acquired through the open data programme of the institute and edited to legible sentences with the help of an original computer programme created by myself.

In order to navigate the book without knowing Finnish, here are some translations:

Each of the lines with a number in the end states that on this date, it rained this much on the island of Hailuoto. The number shows the amount of rain in millimetres.

Each of the lines without a number in the end indicates that it did not rain at all during that day.

Hailuoto holds a particular interest in my life and the introductory paragraph also notes that I do not just yet live there.
