Arizona to Zurich

Hello All!
My family is moving to Zurich from sunny Arizona. I'm leaving here at the right time since it was 110' today! Thank GOD I didn't get rid of my winter coats. We will be in Switzerland for a year. All of us are really looking forward to the move, finding a new home, new school and new friends. If anyone has a good tip on how to combat the temperature shock let us know!

Lisa

Welcome to the forum - I'm just in from my daily clearing of the snow, so I can at least open my front door - but it's actually quite mild for the time of year - a refreshing -10. But it's not so bad once you get used to it.

We're hoping that after nearly 3 weeks we may even see the sun for a bit if it can break through the clouds.

What you could do before you come, is to fill some old, empty coke bottles with some dry desert air, so on the occasional warm sunny day we do have here, you could release it to combat the incredible humidity.

Re: Arizona to Zurich

Welcome to the forum.

To be honest, I think the humidity will be much more of an issue than the temperature though. My cousins live in Phoenix and every time they came east, it was the lack of complete dryness that did them in. Assuming you have no allergies, it should be ok for you.

Good luck with your move and settling in.
