Re: Weather!

Tell us that at the end of September when we are basking in wonderful weather. Indian Summer.

Yes. I admit I was wrong. We all make mistakes.

Not in Geneva, where everything is better, including the weather that only gets crap once you cross the röstigrabe!

Re: Weather!

And yet another gorgeous splendid day- but a little cooler last week than the weeks before, which is great. Yesterday at Creux-du-Van with our visitors was fabulous- with all the Alps waving at them from the distance.

Last night they jammed on the north deck in the evening sun, then under the amazing stary sky, just below the milky way. There is no light pollution whatsoever here, night skies are quite something.

It was a bit of a hike traipsing Thaalavattam's home made refuse/recycled drum kit up- but it was worth it. Kaskas shakers, a mini hang, scratch board made from a paint tray- we had such a laugh- even the deer and horses were impressed.

24C here already this morning! It's going to be too darn hot again. No breeze either to help it feel a bit cooler.

There she goes again .... what exactly do you like? Warm rain?

Perfect for my "today I won't do anything practical/productive/demanding-day".
Which means just lazing in the garden

Re: Weather!

Nope, nice sunny day, temps around 20-22C with a gentle breeze will do me fine. Have a bit of a breeze now, but outside temp just hit 27.1C and not the hottest part of the day yet.

Re: Weather!

Must be your side then, nothing here. Windy again this morning and overcast, but no rain predicted. Of course the forecast might be wrong.

And so it was, it's raining.

And it's finished. Short shower only.

Re: Weather!

after weeks and weeks of high temps and wall to wall sunshine- it all changed in the middle of the night. Some rain, but no deluge - just grey and much cooler. Hope sunshine comes back for next lot of visitors arriving tonight (just dropped some at the station... could do with sunshine for the tons of washing ...)

Edit - well that didn't lasg long- just a few clouds left and sunshine is back - will be able to dry all those towels out after all- hurrah.

Re edit ... clouds all gone ...just a bit cooler which is lovely.

Yes the Summer has gone-again. And it's all our fault-that means also you.

Re: Weather!

Great day and lunch by Lac St Point(25- France) - got home just in time for an impressive storm - crash, bang, wallop - all quiet tow but wet and misty.

Re: Weather!

Sitting in the library, editing the first couple of chapters of my book, windows open and a cool breeze blowing in.

How could anyone complain about this gorgeous, comfortable weather?

Not me. Just got back in from our morning excursion and now have all the windows open for a nice breeze. Only hoping it doesn't get too much warmer this afternoon.

Oops, meant to ask DB what's the book's subject?
