Nothing here, just a bit misty. Hope we don't get more snow - need to go out and do the weekly shop later today or tomorrow.

Darn, snowing here now too. Geneva airport shut again folks so if you thought you were going to be flying out from there today - not happening at the moment.

Didn't last long in the end. From what stacked up on the balcony ledge we only got about 6.5cm.

No fresh snow in ZH this morning and it was the same til we passed through the Gotthard. Steady snow from Bellinzona to Chiasso so far.

Re: Weather!

Having done the weekly shop in the falling snow, this evening was a beautiful sunset, sun disappearing behind the hills, slightly pink clouds and pristine white snow sparkling.

Re: Weather!

Roads in the countryside and in our little village completely cleared with a parade of tractors and snowploughs since Thursday 2.00 a.m.


Arrive Geneva town centre and it was chaos, still last night with many pavements still not cleared. Frozen slush all over, saw 3 people fall over.
