Re: Weather!

Rain? Isn't that wet stuff that falls from up to down? Seem to remember it. Anyway off for a swim, in the sea...

Re: Weather!

I can see two huge storms from my balcony, lightning every few seconds. One is NE from Zürich, the other N.

Thunderstorms coming in later today though no rain predicted with them for my area at least. Then the rain tomorrow. What do you expect? It's a holiday tomorrow of course so it's bound to rain.
Even so, I quite enjoyed the last few days weather...wonderful! For Switzerland. Of course, we shouldn't get used to it....

Gee, never heard a single grumble here. No rain or anything else and it's a lovely day today. Already feeling too hot.

Re: Weather!

Snow is starting to stick at 1260 meters in the Portes du Soleil. I will take full blame. I bought some geraniums at the garden center yesterday and jinxed everybody. Sorry.

Re: Weather!

Huge storm here last night. Thunder, huge lightening strikes over the Saléve, hail, strong wind. Some of my tomato plants are rather flat but should recover. Must have been a lot of pets + babies crying.
Now it is boiling hot again.

You're more resilient than me then. I melted a couple of days ago!

Outdoor temp gauge just hit 40.3C! Admittedly it's on a sunny wall which reflects the heat, but I don't recall it ever getting that high - 38/39 yes but not 40!

Went out with the dogs an hour ago. I have an app on my mobile phone that measures temperature. According to that it was 36C in the shade and over 50 in the sun.....

Re: Weather!

The pool is currently at 27c - but it has been too hot to even get close to it - unless you fancy 4 layers of skin being removed from your feet as you walk across the patio!!!

However Landi's cooling fan does work rather well - inside - while I snoozed through Formula E

Forecast is for cooler weather - let's hope it's right!
