That was a winter breeze. The real storm will come tonight. According to SRF Meteo, the wind will be so strong that the Matterhorn will move 30 meter to the west.

ok, I made up that last part.

Likewise in Canton Zurich, as the Swiss media are reporting with 170 kph winds - sounded like it too...

Are you alive? Are you hanging off some French tree somewhere?

I bet crusing downhill on a scooter would be like VS slopes the other day. Blissfully empty. I am still scraping frozen skin off me.

My little scooter is parked until better weather after skidding on ice and crashing!

Last night was wild though and because our village and surroundings switch off all of the public lights at mid-night, it was pretty surreal .. I went out to the garden to secure the recycling, hail, rain, howling wind and total darkness..

Wonder if my CCTV caught me out there, in my pants at 3am.

Re: Weather!

I was enjoying the weather today on Werd Insel. Decided to take a photo. At the exact moment I took this photo there was a flash of light and a really loud bang.
Could it have been a meteorite explosion??

It certainly looks like that, the US Government tracks these here.

This site is not yet up to date, last entry is 27 Jan.

There is another site that has the raw data for this site here but it needs some time to understand the content.

I was there too yesterday. It was beautiful weather and I had a great lunch with exotic and spicy food. I felt let I had to let something go in my bowels but thought nobody would notice it outside...
