Zurich Snow

Namby pamby powdery snow. Took ages to make a snowman yesterday. Not like dense Yorkshire snow that packs together really easily.

It's good for sledging on though.

Cheers,
Nick

Re: Zurich Snow

It snows like that in Zurich so that the numerous flimsy buildings/greenhouse type things found at allotments don't collapse.

If mother nature wants to snow wet/heavy snow she has to apply 3 months in advance submitting 7 forms, in triplicate, providing dates/times/quantity and location.

This is Switzerland after all!

As an Englishman, you should know that we always have the wrong type of snow!

Ken, you forgot to mention that she also has to provide proof that the snow is necessary and that it would benefit the community in which she lives.
