Russian Classes: Describing rainy weather

Let’s learn some vocabulary for rainy weather!


Being avid mushroom-pickers, Russians sometimes use the phrase 'грибной дождь' - "mushroom rain". It's the kind that can best be characterized as a light drizzle, often on sunny days during the mushroom season. After 'mushroom rain' passes, mushrooms are supposed to grow super fast, so the mushroom-pickers will rush to the forest to find them all.

  •  -О, нет, снова идёт дождь!
    -Это грибной!
  •  -Oh no, it's raining again!
    -It's the mushroom kind!
