Re: When is the snow coming back?

I was up at Engelberg-Titlis today and it was snowing heavily all day. Around 15-20cm during the day. It was still snowing when I left.. More tonight I guess!

No snow yet, only drizzle - but the white stuff is guaranteed to make a return appearance soon.

Why?

Because yesterday I stopped in the Coop, where the displays of cheerful springy primula caught my eye. I couldn't resist - and bought not one, but four, flats. And then spent the afternoon happily a-planting.

Flowers in February? What was I thinking?

Every gardener knows that the mid-winter thaw is just a teaser; the Eisheiligen are a long, long ways away. But in a moment of weakness...

So yes, you can all blame me when winter returns with a vengeance.

I had such primula in my hands yesterday in two different shops and managed to resist, as I expect snow and 0 degrees to return.

Get your flowers indoors NOW please

Re: When is the snow coming back?

Here in Glattbrugg it started snowing an hour ago, and in the past 30 minutes started to settle on the lawns and on the cars.

Re: When is the snow coming back?

Just came back from Zermatt, and despite the lack of snow (it hadn't snowed in weeks) they have amazing snow-making facilities, which means that the slopes were nice and snowy.

Larger resorts are a good option for skiers annoyed by the lack of snowfall...

Re: When is the snow coming back?

For those of you who have been to Engelberg since the latest snowfalls, how are the conditions? Worth a weekend trip, or should I wait for a little more snow to fall?

Spoke to a colleague the other day who said he'd been to Adelboden and that the snow was really poor.

That's probably my fault. I washed my car yesterday.

Think there are a few more days of snow to come, checking my snow app, says they had 30cm on top yesterday and it's still coming down.

You should be fine for snow on the weekend, but I'd check the weather first, couldn't see a thing yesterday.

Myself, I might take the next sunny day off and head up there.

Re: When is the snow coming back?

and here in Zurich Unterland... it has been falling steady since yesterday. Albeit, it finally stopped about an hour ago. I think I am ready for the burning of the Bogg so they can tell us it is going to be a very long HOT summer.... well... one can dream...
