Re: Weather!

Well, everything is relative. My father, back in the northwest of Spain, where I come from, was complaining about the amount of snow they got yesterday.

Now, that would piss me off at this time of year

It will be snowing soon in Switzerland also, but at 700m. Luckily I am at 500m

I know where the northwest of Spain is and I found the area of the Escorial freezing, but what is the height above sealevel where your father is located ?

Re: Weather!

And meteo Suisse seems to be reviewing downwards (temperature wise) their forecast, it's for at least another week...and 6C!!! Now, come on, even Britain does better than that!

Re: Weather!

Another gorgeous sunny day here.
Best make the most of it as I think it will be the last for a while.
Decided to turn the heating on to give it a chance to warm up by the middle of the week but it just seems really unnecessary with the weather as it is today.

Re: Weather!

I really do not like winter weather in Zurich. Seldom see the sun. Most of the time is depressive cloudy, and cold weather ... Summer is lovely though

Get through November and you have got the worst month ( grey, wet )behind you! What is needed now is the cold weather with snow and ice. That changes the whole weather pattern

Re: Weather!

Can anyone tell me what the weather's like up in the Juras atm and forecast for next couple of days? We've got to make a quick trip to the UK and usually go over them to get to Dole and pick up the motorway there. Forecast I've seen is for snow and while we have winter tyres we don't have snow chains.

Re: Weather!

More snow today, then a bright, sunny afternoon... and another interesting drive, until I worked out that the windscreen defroster has a "This is serious" setting.

Re: Weather!

Got the Subaru's tyres changed yesterday, several weeks earlier than normal as we are going up higher mountains soon. My car Yaris can wait a bit.
