Re: Weather!

We have a veritably warm +1° here and not too much snow. Just enough to look really pretty but not enough to be annoying. Perfect winter day with blue sky and sunshine.

Re: Weather!

We got back from the UK in the early hours of this morning, our plane was delayed by about two hours because of the snow in Zurich. We just managed to catch the last train to Baden (phew) and then a taxi to our flat. Finally got to bed at 2.30am.
Last night I was cursing the snow, but today, it all looks so very pretty.

Re: Weather!

Lots of power snow, huge blue skies and brilliant sunshine all day- and all the xcountry ski pistes at Les Cernets opened- wonderful.


Edit : powder!

What's power snow? Does it make you ski faster?

Hopefully the blue sky will have worked its way across to here by tomorrow morning... planning to get the snowshoes out. :-)

We were out driving today. Absolutely beautiful - blue sky, sun and amazing trees. Hoping the sunset is beautiful too.

It was gorgeous here too and looks as though it will be the same tomorrow.
Sunset is looking promising here at the moment.

Re: Weather!

We went sledging with the kiddies yesterday and lasted a whole 20 minutes before running back to the car.

With the icy wind the temperature was well below zero. I was carrying the baby in an ergo, which means that I had to leave my coat open. He was scared by the wind and the cold, and struggled to breathe.

The dog had a blast though

Re: Weather!

Well this was a short night. Big party with the neighbours and friends- we left at 2.00 and left them to it. The stars were amazing. Up at 6am to bid goodbye to younger daughter returning to uk- and dawn was fabulous.

Cold and crisp, but 8C in the sun- still lots of fluffy snow and massive blue sky with sunshine. Get a bit of cleaning and tidying done- then out to play, methinks

Most of the cross country ski pistes around the Jura are open and conditions fabulous. And if you find yourselves below cloud, and if you have time, head up to the Winter Wonderland mountains and the sunshine.

Re: Weather!

All clear here too. Wouldn't think we'd had any snow at all. At least it hung around for a few days. Last year every time we had snow it all melted away within 24 hours as it only put down about 2cm at a time. I never needed to get the snow shovel out.

Re: Weather!

Another beautiful sunny day here today.
Woke up yesterday to see the snow had all disappeared and it was a lovely sunny day all day, got a bit windy last night but it's just as lovely and sunny again today.
We still haven't had to get the snow shovel out but we did have a nice covering that lasted a few days.

Re: Weather!

It was sunny but now it's clouding over. Bits of dirty snow hanging about. The töss (river) is high, fast and muddy. Yesterday was rather gloomy, but we did have funky mist hanging about.

Really?

Crap. I had intended to spend the day in bed. Now I'm going to have to get up and weigh down the bin.

What do you mean no weather?

It's been so cold the last couple mornings that some people had to defrost their windshields before heading to work!
