Re: It's snowing!

If this keeps up, the local ski lift will be open this weekend. Afternoon skiing, sitting in the sun, drinking Cafe Zwetschgen and mingling with the locals: here I come!

Wishing everyone a safe drive. All higher elevation roads (main and side roads) are snow covered in my area.

Re: It's snowing!

This is the tree outside our house this morning, we've had a lot of snow the past few days, probably about 60 cms, so it was fun digging the car out this morning.

What did you expect in Switzerland? Marauding polar bears? Penquins?

Go out and build one of these down by those fancy restaurants at the lake. That should shake things up a bit for you...

Or try a winter swim in the lake for some fun. Geneva swim club has this here and reportedly they also do it in the Limmat around Christmas.

No, that's not quite what I ment. It's beautiful but if you don't have friends or activites it's boring. That's it. Not sure if there's anything funny about it.

I hate cold...that would give me immediate cardiac arrest.
Try it first and let us know how it was. I'm sure it's healthy.

Sorry to spoil the mood (I am with Isabela up here regarding cold weather, brrrr...) but all I could think of this morning when I woke up was...

...It's Christmas once again in San Francisco
There is not a chance that it will snow....


Then I thought about skiing and glühwein and cheered up a bit

Re: It's snowing!

All local ski lifts should be open by latest Saturday.

What better way to celebrate Christmas
than a walk in virgin snow?

Re: It's snowing!

How are the pregnant ladies like me (32 wks) coping? Its my first winter (arrived this february, snow has melted). Im scared to walk and slip on the snow but would have to go out and commute for language class and groceries. Any tips besides good shoes and a (non-pregnant) companion to walk with?

Get some of these to keep you the right way up in even the most slippy of conditions...
