when the weather is lousy around Luzern/Zürich/etc, it is acceptable to good either in the Alsace/Elsass, or around the Lake of Geneva or in the Ticino.
And when the weather is crap in TI, where should I go?

Re: Rain, rain, rain!

No, should be dry (I hope, as I'm taking the afternoon off to go to Busto Arsizio to get new tires)

Re: Rain, rain, rain!

The rain is supposed to let up on the 1st of August and something like summer should come back after that. Do not dispair, it is only water.

Re: Rain, rain, rain!

I've experienced a few summers in CH and there does seem to be a cyclical pattern. My first couple of summers here were pretty much as they have been from the last couple of years - a bit damp and not too hot. I wish for the summers from around 2002-2006 - I remember them as hot and sunny - lovely.

Re: Rain, rain, rain!

The rain is depressing. We have come here from sunny South Carolina two months ago. I would normally be taking my son to the neighborhood pool with his friends and I would be playing tennis in the sunny mornings with my friends.

I have heard from local Swiss that this has been a most unusal bad summer and that it normally is no like this. I hope that is true!

It has been quite good between early May and late June, but July has been rather bad, and August not much better up to now. So that it overall has been worse than usual. But such "summers" occur quite often. I remember one year when autumn in full started on 1st August !

Re: Rain, rain, rain!

I keep saying it, they should organize a KFC Quest in Barca, it could be the biggest event ever! The chicken, the beach and the sun!

What more one can ask?
