Last month, I told you about the awesome Canadian word “keener”.
I hope you’ve been using it because I have another Canadian word for you to learn!
Eavestrough: Rain gutter.
If you don’t have eavestroughs in Canada, water just pours straight off the roof and onto the sidewalk, driveway, etc. Inevitably the water then turns to ice, and inevitably someone walks on the ice and slips and cracks his head open.
So it’s important to have eavestroughs.
