Re: Weather!

It was snowing here last night when we went to bed. Have a light layer of snow. Snowploughs must have gone through early because the roads were already cleared when I looked out at 5.45am, even our little offshoot road had been done.

Re: Weather!

A winterwonderland up here - but today the 'bise' is strong enough to cut you in half. Picked up the dreaded lurgy in the UK- staying warm today with the wood burner blazing.

Re: Weather!

Can sympathise Odile. Hubby and I have been suffering bad colds this last week. He was off for 2 days with it, just wasn't up to getting into work.

Re: Weather!

Arghh poor thing - but a British cold is much worse than a Swiss one for sure

Can't wait to get on my xcountry skis and downhill ones - before 2nd knee replacement early March!

Hope you feel better soon so you can do that ski-ing. Me, I'll stay tucked up nice and warm inside.

Re: Weather!

Looks like miserable weather for us tomorrow. Rain, sleet and snow. And I'm still coughing, spluttering and sneezing.

Sorry to hear that you're under the weather - literally


We have a similar forecast here, but it will be a bit warmer, which means less sleet and snow, so just a nice, miserably cold rain

Re: Weather!

Snow blowing sideways at the moment! We went out a bit earlier to do the weekly shop (3pm) and drove right into another short snow storm. Luckily only lasted a few minutes.

Re: Weather!

I flew to Austria last week-end for work and the plane followed the whole chain of the Alps: the bright blue sky and the snow below were just out of this world! I wish I had been on the slopes rather than on (two) planes and stuck in a hotel for a conference.

Re: Weather!

Very strong winds at the moment, there are a couple of flags on a bridge a couple of hundred metres away. The wind is cracking them like a whip, the noise is so loud it sounds like someone is moving furniture on my balcony

Re: Weather!

It snowed really hard last night. When I opened the blinds and looked out the first thing I saw was 2 feet of snow.

Re: Weather!

The roads are crazy from 700 meters upwards. I saw people putting chains on at 850 meters today.

Be safe everyone.
