Re: Weather!

I am surprised they let him try out without a life jacket. A no-no in our family.

Was that it?

Five minutes of rain in Geneva??!! Everyone had their windows open and a man was shouting in the street... And people clapping... and happy.

We need a thunderstorm... Badly.

Nobody is sleeping properly, and waking up all sweaty and yucks is not nice.

A friend of mine put his three kids in a cool bath at 3 in the morning.
Well, at least you got some rain. We had one almost grumble of thunder at dinner time, but nothing else.

It is cooler though which is a relief, but we could really use the rain here.

Re: Weather!

It's been absolutely pouring here! And a much more agreeable 23 degrees

Last night the sky went dark at around 18 or 19h, then the wind really picked up a lot! And we could hear distant rumbles and then it stopped. We did get a storm over here at around 01h, it was quite a busy one and we had one big one that must have been quite close (we had window open but with shutters closed all but 1cm) I felt a bit frightened because it reminded me of the one on Monday. Instead of wanting to rush outside and try to video some big ones I wanted to hide in bed and my heart started racing (not in a good way ) I've never been scared before and I still want to love storms, I hope I won't be permanently altered by Monday's!

Very grey and drizzly now but it's nice and fresh. I've been out of the bath for a whole hour now and still not sweaty hurrah! The kids and I are going to enjoy a quiet day in with phones/tablets/books!

Night time lightning photography is my hobby And no storm over here...Just air masses shift (wind, no storm nor rain). It is now 23C much cooler, almost cold

Re: Weather!

Here it's a whole 15 degrees cooler than yesterday.

I never knew breathing could be so much fun.

Re: Weather!

Yesterday was officially the hottest ever day in Switzerland, North of the Alps. It reached 39.7C around Geneva

Re: Weather!

We went to beautiful Faffleralp in Lötschental and it was not too bad, yesterday, but when we stopped in Leuk to do some shopping, is was 39.5! And even up here in Leukerbad, 30C at 18.00.

Much better today after last night's rain- and very pleasant around Albinen this morning- but hotting up again- do they do cool spas here, instead of hot?

Re: Weather!

Did you lodge at Demeure des Elfes in Albinen? It was wonderful when we stayed there 3 years ago.

Re: Weather!

I was too optimistic and wore a long-sleeved blouse today. Wrong wardrobe choice!

No, rent an apartment in Loèche itself. Where is the Demeures des Elfes in Albinen, looked for it but couldn't spot it? (I'd remembered your comment from last year). Very hot again tonight.

It was absolutely BOILING in Morat on Friday

Today it looked a bit grey for the first time in ages- so I thought the decorating would be easier, but it was sweltering again from 11am onwards- cooling off a bit now, pheeew.
