Re: Weather!

Mixed bag here in Basel so far this morning - woke at 5am to what looked like clear skies, went back to sleep to be woken by the cats at 730 to clouds. Looks sunny again... and looks like the forecast I looked at Saturday for today is pretty accurate - mix of sun and clouds.

No, no no no nooooo..
Ok, here is the thing.
Spring, while wet, can be quite long and wonderful, with ability to have the windows open and be a nice comfortable temperature well into June.

However, when July and August roll around and it is hot and the air is full of mosquitoes, the "best" way (well, the local way anyhow ) is to wake early and open all the windows. Then, close them to trap the cool air inside AND before the sun hits them, close the outside shutters to keep the sun off the glass.

Yes, you think things are depressing and gloomy now, just wait til you have a month+ of enforced indoor gloom just to try to keep your apartment to a bearable temperature for sleep.


(Of course, modern conveniences like single room air conditioners and ceiling fans exist which will help, but they still will run much more efficiently if you do your best to keep the sun off your windows during the day)
