Which long weekend?
On Thursday the 15th of August, it was Assumption Day. At least there where I come from. As Friday had been booked a day off, it created a perfect long weekend for lucky some of us!

Winter is for sleeping
Amount of rest needed is proportional to one’s tiredness, season independent. Unless you claim to be a bear. Are you?

At this point, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll be able to harvest my tomatoes this year. So far they are mostly just green - they need some hot, dry weather to finish off.

I'm torn between loving the cool rain and wishing that the garden had better weather
THe rains are now finished for this season. One can look forward now to dry sunny weather

My optimistic weather clock ticks a perfectly gorgeous forecast throughout the whole week. Not too hot and not too cold.

I did. It’s cloudy in Solothurn but stable in terms of no rain. Hope to be able to play some tennis this afternoon!

P.S. I pity you. You must be unlucky to live in such a weather wise deplorable region.

Give it a tap. The humidity is pretty high which is probably what is throwing off the reading. The rain radar of Meteo Schweiz shows no rain on the way apart from a few lingering showers down in the South East.

Omtatsat didnít call a plumber in time. Hence he is overwhelmed by the water.

what else would you expect? Don't forget that you are in the least sunny area of continental Europe when you live in Switzerland... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...uration#Europe

Yes right. But at least these forecasters can try and get it right sometime. Forecast today is friendly and sunny. What a joke if you look outside.

Well, at least only in the mountains for now... a few years ago we had snow on the hills around Zurich in late September.
