Looks positively cheery compared to Aargau at the moment.
Yes, there is a Jahrsmarkt in Baden today, but sadly I think it will be a bit of a washout. Probably be giving it a miss.
At the moment I am sitting here in my running gear, but I may be giving the run a miss too!

I'm trying to keep the dogs as calm and quiet as possible in the vain hope that they'll forget about going for a walk...

Each to his/her own.

I don't mind the snow. So long as I can stay indoors, warm and dry, while it does its thing outside.

Re: Weather!

Well, that'll teach me. The labrador has finally woken up and decided its walk time, just as it starts to snow.

Yuck.

The pointer is going to be deeply pissed off at being dragged out into this

It wasn't nice snow. It was wet, cold, dribbly, cold, rainy cold snow.

Did I mention that it was cold.

Nice try Lucy, but that grey has a definite graduation. The grey in Zürich is flat and certainly not so "colourful"

Todays weather made me realise how lucky and fortunate one is to have a roof over its head to enjoy the warmth of a family home. Hope you too.

Re: Weather!

England weather vs Swiss weather :

I feel that weather in Swiss is much better than that of England which is extremely grey and rainy all the time throughout the year.

Re: Weather!

Nice here again this morning but it's freaking cold.
Doesn't seem to have done for the snails though as they're still merrily marching up my garage wall.

Re: Weather!

Beautiful and sunny everywhere down here in Neuchatel ( and not just my little corner) and up to a very respectable 14 degrees now.
Horrible, miserable and grey with snow on the ground up in t'mountains in La Chaux de Fonds.
