Re: Weather!

White out and blizzard, couple of feet of snow overnight and lots more today and next couple of days. Métabief ski resort will partially open from tomorrow- as will I imagine most of the Jura resorts.

Re: Weather!

Not that much of snow, but it started to snow a bit of *real snow* now, not the wet one.

This morning, a friend of mine who lives at the foot of the French Jura, not that far away from me (less than 15 km), had to shovel twice to get her car on the street when I've got almost nothing here ...

It's funny how the weather can be different within a few kilometers....

Re: Weather!

We had almost no snow at all here.
There was a light dusting of nice white powdery snow but not even enough to cover the grass.
We seem to have a micro climate all of our own here.

Re: Weather!

This was the Idiot Labrador's first ever snow. She wasn't at all keen on it this morning - went out several times before she realised that she could perch in the shelter of the balcony above and just hang her bum out into the snow to wee.

Once we got her out in it properly though, she decided she loved it. Especially when she discovered that she could eat snow balls…

Re: Weather!

Another 30cm since we cleared all the snow from the drive- grandkids are loving it, and so is Gatsby, our great big old Heinz 57 from the Valais- she was up to her shoulders in the garden this pm.

Re: Weather!

Same here in Basel. Steady and quite heavy, really, but doesn't seem to be covering much.

Re: Weather!

Nothing here, it's been too cold. Minus 10.7 last night and still minus 2.9. Had some nice sunshine this morning, but it's clouded over since so I suppose we may get more snow.

It's still snowing here in the hills above Zürich. I wish it would bugger off.

Re: Weather!

It started here at lunchtime after a beautiful morning and snowed steadily all afternoon. Got quite a few centimetres now.

Re: Weather!

blue skies, dry and a cold wind from the north making it seem colder than it is. Behind Cenere, it seems the wind is blocked and it's been relatively nice here.

the darn cloudless sky makes it cold overnight...could be -4 or so

Re: Weather!

Just got back from Christmas in Wales... who broke the weather while I was away???

The last 50 km from Olten to Luzern at about 17:30 this evening was quite nasty, with an uncleared motorway, a blizzard and a steady stream of lorries in a hurry overtaking. Quite relieved to have made it home!

Re: Weather!

I have no idea how cold it is out there, and I have no intention of going to find out.

It's still snowing hard.

Re: Weather!

It was an amazing Winter Wonderland here this morning- but very cold. Huge clue skies, the sun lighting the woods behind the house, and loads of champagne powder snow. Was very happy to get the text message that daughter, sil and grandchildren had got down to Besançon and French Mway without any trouble.

Very high cloud now and sun gone, and less cold.

La Brévine, which has the cold record with minus 42.8C about 10 years ago, was a mere balmy minus 29.5 yesterday.
