Re: Weather!

Well, what can I say .....
the rumbling stopped, the sky is bright (at almost 20.30h) and blue with a few light clouds, 22°C, the birds are chirping happily and ..... the kids are still out playing. Okay, that does not delight me as much as the rest.

Pretty strong wind here in Eglisau.

A neighbour's table just blew off their balcony. Who the hell puts a folding card table on a balcony?!

Re: Weather!

More thunderstorms on the way today. Make sure stuff is put away if needed, batten down the hatches, etc, etc. At least it'll be a bit cooler, yesterday was very uncomfortable.

Re: Weather!

It's a lovely, refreshing breeze and will burn off in an hour or two. The jet stream is moving north and will sit just beneath Iceland for the first few days of next week. Time to stock up on the factor 30.

That's what it is? I was wondering - while freezing - how it could be so cold suddenly as it hadn't been raining.
It was 14°C at 9 am. I expected the heater to pop on
Still only 16°C.

Unbelievable but true. The temp of the Limmat at Letten dropped from 22.5 C yesterday to 12,5 C today at 12 midday!! I nearly had a heart attack when I jumped in the canal at Werd! Strange the temp of the lake remained the same 22 C. Maybe they dropped an iceberg in the Limmat!
