Re: Weather!

When you come from Australia then summer means summer and not something wishy washy like the Swiss summer.

Thieving frontaliers are stealing our rain today. I can see it over the Salève. My gazon maudit is still in need of a good soaking.
No they don't. It was pouring all night here

Re: Weather!

Not at nights or maybe just at higher altitudes, we are rehearsing in the mountains these days and it's nippy. Like, I-sing-in-winter-jacket nippy. Otherwise I'd hit the high notes with my teeth chattering. Gaaaaahhh.

Geneva is being tropical, and I am not conditioned for these kind of temperatures!

This September in Zürich is probably the best I have experienced here. Gorgeous days. Water 23C.

Feels more like 32C to me! And yes, in Scotland a mere 26C is Dante's inferno, as Patsycat I'm sure mentioned before!

Re: Weather!

You're not in Geneva!!

Nah, just kidding. It is bearable.

Just wait a few months and we'll all be complaining about blizzards and North winds freezing our eyelids together!!

Are you always so negative and pompous towards every post you reply to?

I was making a tongue in cheek comment.

And to reply to you - i have seen blizzards in Geneva in the past 45 years, so there!! Snowed in, couldn't go to school etc.

Re: Weather!

The weather is so pleasant. So little laundry to do these days..a few skirts and dresses, that's all. I want this to stay for good. Except it turns the classroom into a tropic greenhouse, hard to teach/learn.

Re: Weather!

I would like to say goodbye to my best friend - the Summer. You have been with us for almost three months. Today we are seeing you for the last time...Rest in peace now and see you next year, hopefully as soon as possible! Ciao!
