Zurich: Winter 2011-2012

It has been a relatively "mild" winter compared to the last few years here in Zurich. But look at what is in store for us here in Zurich. It is going to be freezing later this week but too late for Lake Zurich to freeze up.......

...unless Katla in Iceland decides to erupt before the end of winter.

"When Katla went off in the 1700s, the USA suffered a very cold winter," says Gary Hufford, a scientist with the Alaska Region of the National Weather Service. "To the point, the Mississippi River froze just north of New Orleans and the East Coast, especially New England, had an extremely cold winter.
"Depending on a new eruption, Katla could cause some serious weather changes."

Oooh, now that's a bit parky. Doesn't look like I'll be two-wheeling it to work this week then...
