Re: Weather!

Numerous power glitches today as well, although none during the Switzerland-Poland match. Still annoying and makes it challenging to cook dinner.

Re: Weather!

Shining brightly here in Basel, although the shifting clouds could change that before you even get out of your apartment

Re: Weather!

Chucking it down here again. Second downpour of the day. First was at 2.30am - just after some idiot rang the OH up to check whether the problem he'd had with their computer programme was resolved. Yes, thanks - but you do realise you woke me up!

And now it's stopped, quick burst of heavy rain.

Re: Weather!

Last summer it was completely different.
Starting from the spring, nice ans sunny and all the way through the summer until August when in the stores they ran out of fans.

Re: Weather!

Really hard to plan activities when the weather is so inconsistent but I do enjoy a good storm in evening... as long as I'm not out in it

Re: Weather!

I don't think we had any rain here yesternight- some rumbling, some rattling of the stores, but that's it....

Re: Weather!

W had a really (really!) hard rain last night, and a little drizzle this morning.

I'm still happy with this temperature (20-22)

Re: Weather!

Lovely but cold this evening. Perhaps shock and lack of sleep.

Yeah, me too! 30C+ doesn't do a thing for me. Low to mid-20s is fine.

Re: Weather!

Right, that's it! Too hot, I'm off to U.K. where, according to the BBC, it will be at least 10C less than here in Geneva! Good night sleep guaranteed for a week...then I'll be gasping for sunshine again and happy to be back in Geneva!

Re: Weather!

Yes, we've managed over a week without rain! Make the most of it, rain due here at least from Monday afternoon onwards. That'll make it nice and cool again. Lovely!

I will complain about the heat, because I never complain about the cold/rain.


It is Too Damn Hot

Re: Weather!

Move to t'mountains. A pleasant 27 with a nice breeze- but it will cool nicely for the night and a good sleep.
