Hell no! Better not because I plan to play tennis today and just saw the wind coming towards Baden with thunderstorm clouds. Hope they be postponed till next week

I like them...

Such a fantastic unleashing of energy - It's nature's way of reminding you that you're just as important to her as bacteria.

cheers,

That storm came out of nowhere and disappeared almost as quickly.

Unfortunately I was at work at the time and unable to watch as I would do back in Australia (i.e. on the balcony with a coldy)

Zurich just got our share - the sun is shining and it's Thundering & Raining. I can't think of anything else much more pleasurable!

Indeed!
This is what I would expect on a hot summery day...a late day thundershower to cool things down for a comfy sleep at night...

Edit: seems like round two is on its way, me hear thunder already

We've just had a substantial storm in Bern - well, south of Bern. Now everything is nice and cool.

Re: Finally, some good summery storms [Basel]

And so I went to the tennis courts, warmed up for 10min and were chased by the thick rain-drops completely chance-less...

Re: Finally, some good summery storms [Basel]

Hi! I've been here in Dübendorf for 1 1/2 month and I was wondering...is summer always as these days? I mean, do they specifically ask for rainy days in the weekend? I really want to go out and do a little sightseeing, but with this rain I get a little lazy....


....and all this suddenly storms made my head hurts...sotrm-headaches I call them...anyway it is very impressive to see how the weather can change all of a sudden round here...

Re: Finally, some good summery storms [Basel]

I was 10 minutes into a bike ride along the Rhein when the storms hit. No raincoat or shelter to be found. I have never seen anything like it and have certainly not been caught in a storm like that. The wind was so strong that it sent tables and chairs flying and me and my new bike were left covered from head to toe in grit and dirt as well as being soaking wet.

Bike ride cancelled in favour of a hot bath
