On second thoughts I will hold my comment for another day (just remember the Robert the Bruce story.)

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

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.

Wait until the fire season and Santa Ana's kick in - although you may just be north enough to avoid them.

They have started around here. only 30 minuted away and it is so scary....I feel bad for our planet when I see all the smoke going up in the air. my wife works for AAA and always gets the calls from people whos house is about to burn down... . One thing that is noce about living here is you never have to plan around the weather....it is always the same

Weather!

To the west and north, it's sunny. East and south looks dark and threatening. Just need to figure out which way it's moving.

Ah, according to meteo swiss, it's moving south east. Good thing i watered the plant life.
