Re: Weather!

Basel is finally tolerable, weather-wise! Although the Rhine is low and slow - and warm. The poor fishes. Apparently there are tonnes of them that have died already due to the lack of oxygen in the warm water

Here's hoping for more rain!

Glad you like it.

No seriously, guess you deserve a little break considering you are recuperating.
I can manage this cold. For a day or two.

Anonymous note in their letterbox or call the police.

No worries. Someone else yelled about it - wasn't me.

Re: Weather!

edot, are you enjoying it?

Hell broke lose here, floods of water and the wild wind makes sure it hits all the windows!
Kind of fascinating though.

Refreshing is a very polite word to use on this
Still, it was quite spectacular here.

Re: Weather!

It's just been too much and too long here in Zürich.

Don't know anyone who's really enjoyed the heat over a longer period, with or without children.

Had to get-up before 06:00 to be able to do my daily 10km through the forest.

Can't wait for Autumn - should apparently arrive next week...

Well, Meteo promises the week-after next.

Not great for me, who has to attend 2 interviews looking fresh and presenting as professional banking professional this or next week.

Re: Weather!

Another gorgeous day here - spent the afternoon walking around the Creux-du-Van and it was very hot. As I was driving down- heavens opened, could hardly see the road which turned into a river. Back home- still sunny and hot, not a drop.
