Re: Weather!

Nasty looking black clouds coming my way so I decided to close the window shutters up early just in case.

Re: Weather!

Well we had nothing here at all.
It was a lovely day up until about 4pm when it clouded over and there were a couple of rain showers. No fun at all really. I like a good thunderstorm.

It's nice again this morning but not for long I don't think. Rain is on it's way for this afternoon.

Re: Weather!

Didn't last long- a sprinkle of snow overnight- all gone now in the warm, bright sun, and not a puff of wind.

I am in two minds about that.....for one I am really really glad as this will ease my 'miffedness' on being housebound but on the other hand not so happy about it, as Daughter #2 is on the road with her motorscooter....hope it won't get too bad!

Re: Weather!

Will cross fingers your forecast is better than ours then. Cloudy this morning with rain, sleet and snow coming in this afternoon through to tomorrow morning. Had a little smattering of rain this morning, but dry for now.

Re: Weather!

Today we've had everything thrown at us- sunny this morning, no wind, then wind and rain and since late afternoon heavy snow and settling! Ah well...Edit 11.15 - still snowing estimate 15cm since 5pm- will be shovelling and snow blowing tomorrow I expect.

BTW conditions are really good at Métabief/Mt d'Or in France not too far from here.

Re: Weather!

Some snow first thing this morning, but it's stopped now. Just put down a very light covering of white.

What a difference a few kilometres makes. This is what we have this morning.
It makes me very happy ad we're helping a friend to move today.

Re: Weather!

An absolute glorious day in Basel today! Shorts and T-shirt while biking through 3 countries and 42 miles of bike friendly trails.

This follows 2 blue bird days at Zermatt.

I will so miss this place.

Re: Weather!

Absolutely lovely, sunny and warm all week-end, and Spring does seem to have sprung. Snow almost gone and flowers coming out everywhere, kites and buzzards soaring above and meewing, and saw our first redstarts and nuthatches today, as well as several brown and red squirrels.

The morilles season (morels, spugnole) is upon us, so will spend much time 'hunting' next week. Reserves have all gone as wasn't able to go foraging last Spring after my knee replacement. Hurrah.
