Where is the winter? The snow?
Before Christmas/New Year, it's always the phoney winter - proper winter is only scheduled for Jan/Feb.

It's snowing! Take care if you're going outside folks as according to the forecast it's due to continue all day.

So that the White Christmas now has arrived
I however do not see anything strange about snow
I have my Christmas Tree in front of me. It looks as good as it did 10 years ago when I bought it -- artificial but beautiful

It's snowing here west of Bern, maybe 8 cms (About 3 inches) of snow already, but it is stopping now.

Quite nice today with all the snow I have to say! A little late for a white Christmas but I'll take it nonetheless...

Re: Weather!

White out and blizzard up here in the Neuch Jura- about 2 ft overnight and still snowing heavily with lots more to come. Should be able to get some skiing with the 'kids' and grandkids in Métabief a bit later in the week.

Re: Weather!

Lots of snow falling, and showing no signs of stopping. Son of Mine is heading off to Spain today and is fretting about the trains. I have to keep reminding him that this isn't the UK.

Well, yes, but there are quite a few accidents here too.

http://www.truckinfo.ch/

The problem always is, despite warnings not to travel unless absolutely necessary, people just carry on as if it's warm and sunny. Then wonder why things go wrong. I knew I wasn't going to go out today if the snow came down as forecast and even the OH hasn't suggested going out today.

Just started as well as we were leaving Belli, but just a dusting, even here in Wassen. And zero at Gurtnellen.

Yesterday was still 14C and sunny.

it is no problem to travel/drive if you have decent winter tyres on you car BUT lots of people in places like Zürich and Basel drive around with summer tyres


and in metropolitan areas, people might allow their car to stay at home and to get onto public Transport -- I still remember that memorable weekend in March 2006 when road traffic, bus traffic and tram traffic in Zürich came to a total stop but S-Bahnen continued business as normal -- everybody was impressed
