Re: Weather rant

Brilliant sunshine up here this morning - but were invited for lunch with friends by Lake Neuchatel - thick fog all day. Drove back up here in the Jura mountains to brilliant sunshine again. Head for the mountains.

It's much nicer if one just takes the funicular up to chaumont than in the city. Beautiful view

Re: Weather rant

If I remember rightly Zurich spent the entire weekend under a thick grey cloud.

The Walensee was bathed in beautiful blue skies and sunshine.

One the flipside it is covered in thick cloud today.

I wish I was.. Now granted, it may just be a dusting-- but according to the wetter, as of now, the low Sunday/Monday will be 1 to -1. So any moisture in the air "could" present itself as the white fluffy stuff...

BTW, Highs next week appear to be in the 8 to 11 range, and the lows -1 to 3.

Re: Weather rant

Those of you who've lived in Basel over previous Winters ... is this it? Is it going to stay damp, grey, foggy and miserable until March?

I arrived mid January this year and the weather was awful and didn't improve for weeks.

If this is what Swiss/Basel Winter is like, day in day out, then I need to re-evaluate my plans.

Re: Weather rant

Yeah, I had space in my suitcase and you'd be amazed how much fog and freezing mist you can cram in there if it's heavily compressed.

Re: Weather rant

Cold last night, 3C at 10pm and a slight frost overnight. The balmy temperatures of last week gone - but another brilliantly sunny day up in the Jura at 950m.

You might say "it could be worse". BUT it WILL become worse soon And in a bit more than a month it will be
ICE, ice, ice everywhere. Ice on the hood of the car, ice on the bike, ice on the trottoirs

Re: Weather rant

Yep, part 2 of the frosty winter is on the way, temps such as -16 to -20 for the greater Basel area are expected.

Be prepared for your snot to get solid within minuts walking outside Been there done that when i use to work in a huge freezer warehouse, without the correct protection what ever snot you had in your nose turned rock solid.

Back to the forecast, next week should be mild, slightly colder, the week after however shows drops again to - way to deep for me.

For now we have +9 degrees what makes the snow/ice on my roof shift,creating a noise so loud you think the slates are dropping off with them.

Also when the snow shifts, the girls above us make a delightfull little shreek

Still i jump up and stick to the ceiling trying not to wett my pants when it happens at 2 am..scares the b'djeezes out of me.
