Re: How about that snow!!

Took a five-hour lunch break to take Mk. 1 sledding up on the Gurten. Grand, it was.

Is it sledding or sledging? I know the latter is sports term as well...

...and one year after: it is snowing again

Ha ha and I am still shovelling the white mess away

I would love for spring to come or at least a few rays of sunshine,is all I ask , the continous grey weather and 'light' makes one almost depressive

Re: How about that snow!!

Since it's the 3rd anniversary of the big snow, it's about time to activate this thread for its annual appearance. (Mods: This is on topic, since the photos are from the first snow on the opening message, I just never got around to posting them until now)

I'm not in ZH any longer, but this is one of my favorite sets. Although I've been in deeper snows, I don't remember any snow that transformed the entire surroundings the way this snow did because of the way it built up on objects.

Grossmunster in the snow:


Statue in the garden at the corner of Zwierstrasse and Birmensdorferstrasse; naked lady on which pranksters placed hats and scarves all winter. She was thus prepared for the big snow:



Cool Rides:


Smart car -> Snow car?


Fountain at the Lindenhof:

And you might as well see more of it this year around as the winter seems like is not giving up its way towards spring yet

I remember a couple of years ago it was a little bit snowing in Joburg (SA) and the weather for few days looked like in one of the European cities. Most of the people were surprised seeing snow first time in their life and perceived it as an incredible phenomenon of nature. One can always go to Drakensberg Mountains on Lesotho side.

Re: How about that snow!!

We were quite lucky in Zinal (Valais) last weekend. We had two sunny days and the weather forecast showed snow on Mon/Tue. Lets hope Sat/Sun this coming weekend will bring nice fresh powder around Einsiedeln
