Re: Weather!

Heavy grey skies today- looks like snow might actually be on the way.

Re: Weather!

The forecast is for snow this evening, but it's Thursday night and Friday that look the coldest. I brought the cat in last night as it was -4 here, endured his yowling to go outside, and will be doing the same each night this week. Deep joy...

Re: Weather!

Seems as if the new year has decided grey in grey is the new black or some such thing.

I took daughter 3 for the first time for a walk through the forest close to the motorway station where daughter 2 works......

-6 to -7 degrees and everything so lovely covered in thick frost, foggy but almost magical with everything covered in those ice crystals.

Then back home..... grey, greyer...... glooooomm.

Re: Weather!

Sometime in the last hours the snow came and I didn't even notice. It's kind of a lot

It's absolutely magical actually.

Re: Weather!

We got a dusting of snow overnight too. Will melt off pretty quickly though I think as we have clear skies and NO FOG! Hoorah!

Re: Weather!

This is going to be a gorgeous day!

Happy New Year everyone!

Ps. I have just seen the Sun erupting like a volcano from the Bernese Alps! What a view!

Re: Weather!

Grey skies yesterday and I was sure we would wake up to snow- but no, just wall to wall sunshine again.

Re: Weather!

Yay! I've just seen Venus. The planet, not the tennis player. Nice and visible as a bright star not too far away from the crescent moon.

Re: Weather!

The snow has just started to come down now here in Baden to add to Monday night's fall.
It's 2.2 degrees, so relatively warm, supposed to be minus 10 Friday night!

Silently snowing in Winterthur to top up what we already have. Very peaceful.
