Re: Eskişehir[edit]

Selamlar! Of course I do not mind nor do I object that you are editing—this is a wiki and you are very, very welcome to edit just as anybody else. In fact, it makes me happy to see other people taking an interest in editing articles that I myself had significantly edited.

But, I simply cannot agree with you that winter rains are not a feature of the climate of Eskişehir (and certainly of the Black Sea and of Istanbul, neither—the main form of winter precipitation is rainfall rather than snow in both of those). OK, it may snow rather a lot in Eskişehir (the amount of which varies from year to year), but it is very much possible that it rains in winter, too (while I don't and have never lived there, I have been there more times than I can count). The main reason for me adding this was that the climate info as it stood could make a reader think it's a rather remote possibility to get any wet at all, which in fact is false—what I added in that edit was my exact experience on a cold and wet February day in 2009. If you think that's a rare event as not to deserve a mention, that's fine, but in any way, we need to tweak the wording of that section so the users could be warned properly that it's very much possible to get wet (and sometimes, rather heavily). – Vidimian 17:36, 15 December 2010 (EST)
