This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

All of a sudden the trees are rocking back and forth by 3-4 meters and the rain is slamming the building...

How is it for you other neuchateloises?

It's days like these that I love being on the top floor - we get to hear everything. It's like we're camping!

Mother Nature, awe-inspiring!

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

It's jusat arrived here too and it's incredible. The wind is amazing.

Was quite fun to watch my neighbour scrambling to get all her chair cushions togetrher as they flew off along the road.

Luckily I'd already got my washing in.

ETA. Thunder and lightening just arrived now too.

We just found about 3 liters of water that came in through our CLOSED window.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

Went for a shower. When I came out, my kitchen was soaked as I'd left the window open. That's my plans for the evening shot, then.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

According to my radar, the worst of it will keep a bit south of Zürich. Hope it does. I DO hate mopping up the water in my cellar.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

In Basel we were having dinner on the terrace and the clouds rolled in - heavy hail, thunder and lightening!!! Rain has passed but just heard a couple loud grumbles!! The walk to the gym is looking dubious....

Clear skies, sun shining through, no wind, rain finished - here on the Swiss/French border in the Jura.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

Thanks for the warning. The sky is starting to look pretty ominous here in Greifensee. I hadn't realized that we may be in for a big one.

Re: This storm came fast!!! (Neuchatel)

Never seen anything like it, on the A3 highway people had actually stopped under bridges and in tunnels to shelter from hailstones the size of marbles. These things would definitely dent your car, but luckily I managed to find an underpass where I could wait it out for 10 mins or so.

As usual Basel has statistics and not weather, it rained a bit and the streets got moist.
