Sure I'm sure we'd have a lot of interesting things to chat about.

What's your poison? I'll stock up on it.

Re: Weather!

Thunder and lightning, very heavy rain and hail!

It's so loud we can't hear the radio!

Re: Weather!

That's crazy! We have sort-of blue skies, bright sunshine and a lovely 24 or so. Simply delightful!

Yeah, it's been like that in Baden all day until half an hour or so ago.

It could be coming to Basel next!

Re: Weather!

Same here, blue sky. Dropped to 17°C now though.

But it's like that, weather is sometimes extremly "local". One time I ordered food - the sun was shining in my part of town - and they called me, they'll be late as the streets are completely under water in the center of town!
I thought it was a trick but the guy who delivered the food did not believe his eyes. LOL.

We get similar here sometimes. Once the village was under thick fog for 3 days. Get a few kilometres away and bright sunshine.

Lovely and sunny here at the moment.

Re: Weather!

Another example: yesterday evening evidently it was rain and hailstones in Fribourg city. Us - about 4-5 kilometres away - got so little rain the streets hardly looked wet. And no hail at all.

Re: Weather!

Had a gentle thunderstorm last night, a bit of grumbling and rumbling and managed some proper rain as well.

Still, at least we didn't get something like this.
