My bad - I over did it with the chills in the Jalfrezi tonight. The emergency plumber is due in an hour to fix the WC - and the glazer has already boarded up the bathroom window.

Last time I light a match BEFORE I drop the kids off

Re: Sonic booms at this time?...

Stranger Things was fantastic, as are the sonic booms. The airforce occasionally gets scrambled and send jets booming across the country. Due to the small size, the booms echo across a third of the country sometimes. The one funny fact I read, is the Swiss Airforce only operate during office hours. So if you're a neighbouring country and want to invade, I'd suggest starting at 5pm on a Friday.

It didn't sound like a sonic boom to me in Zuriwest, more like a skip being dropped off a building

Yep.

Much further away from Zürich than the last two ones I experienced. (at least the sound was much less imho)

The one from July last year made my curtains move like it was a big windgust...

Perhaps it's the annual Swiss military exercise so they remember how to fly the really fast planes? It is during business hours, after all. If this was posted after 17:00 I'd be more suspicious.
