A quick hello

I am an half-Italian, half-Swiss citizen who has lived most of his life in Italy and has most of his family still there. I lived for some short periods around Basel in the past, however in the last few years I've been living in Ticino, near the Italian border.

And... that's it? I am a quite reserved person so I'd rather keep details to myself. That said, I look forward to dropping here from time to time. Meanwhile, hopes for everyone to look forward to a 2021 better than this year (low bar to clear, I know, but still).

Re: A quick hello

Hello and welcome.

Maybe we are neighbours? We also decided to trade the Aargau fog and move to the Tessin. We are also close to the Italian border.

But what's with the snow? The locals tell us it hasn't snowed in the past few years and we have had 2 snowfalls in December.

I'm sure it's snowed every winter since I moved here in 2015 - certainly there was some before Christmas last year.

Great! I keep asking people if I should buy a snowblower and people tell me it‘s very unusual and not to bother. But, we‘ve had more snow here in 1 month than the last 5 years in Aargau.

I read somewhere that there is more snowfall this year due to there being less air pollution because of the pandemic (less flights, etc.) but I have no idea if that's true.

Local papers have just written that there has not been this much snow in Lugano in December since 2009 and before that 1961!

Also, it has been particularly grey with record low levels of sunshine! Great introduction to Ticino. This wasn’t the plan!

Do you have some snow to spare, we could really use some here north of the alps.

You are correct. But now you are snow birds. Courageous.

Post some skiing pics.

You’re welcome to come and take whatever you want. We’re getting a new shipment today, just to ensure we don’t run out.
