Re: Weather!

our village up here went in and out of fog and sun all afternoon- we were right on the edge of it. Had to drive through Val-de-Ruz above Neuchâtel today- thick fog all the way. Maybe it was clear below?

Re: Weather!

No fog down here. Been grey and overcast, but that's it. No rain today.

No fog here either.
It was grey for most of the day but the sun did manage to poke through a couple of times.

Re: Weather!

Maybe a smiggin for us, but forecast not looking as bad as it was when I checked last week. Supposed to be chucking it down with rain on Tuesday, rain/sleet on Wednesday and rain on Thursday. Now maybe just a little snow early Wednesday afternoon, with a little rain the rest of the time.

Re: Weather!

Bright but no sun this morning, drizzly when I went out at 2.30 - then very heavy snow - took me ages to get home. Still snowing heavily.

Re: Weather!

grey here but in the afternoon there was a silver lining at the horizon .... really, that's what it was. Interesting I thought.

Anyway, now there is icy rain, seriously unpleasant.

Re: Weather!

It has been raining pretty much all day today.
It was horrible especially after the lovely sunny day we had yesterday.

Ditto here. Stuck at home with 2 kids, 3 dogs and a husband. I miss work!

Re: Weather!

60 cm overnight - clear day, no sun yet.

Thank dawg for the snowblower and it has brought all the birds we don't see so often, bullfinches, grosbeak, bramblings, and the usual tits of every kind (not long the long tailed though) and of course our mass of resident sparrows.

Re: Weather!

Had a tiny bit of snow overnight, but melted off now in the SUNSHINE! It's coming and going, but at least we've seen some at last.

Our resident flock have deserted us, haven't see them for days now. I assume they're snug in their nests and there may be other food sources closer to those than we are. I know neighbours have put a bird ball out, not sure what the ones on the other side of the hedge may do in wintertime. Didn't help that our other neighbour cut down the evergreen bush he had in his front garden which the birds often perched in and may have had nests there too.

Re: Weather!

This is my forecast for today according to MeteoSuisse.



But when opened the shutters this morning it's a beautiful sunny day with not a cloud in the sky. Such a nice change from the overcast and gloomy weather of all last week.

Our neighbour has to leave for work at 7am normally- so not unusual to hear their snow blower clearing their garage around 6am. Fair enough.
