Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

The weather forecast for Sunday is unfortunately not looking too good.
What shall we do?

Re: Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

I voted for postpone (to 5th June). Not because of the rain but because I'm not free this Sunday but will be on the 5th June.

As long as it is just light rain (which it seams to be) and not heavy rain, I think it won't be too bad. Okay, the view from the castle won't be that great, but I guess we can live with it.
I'm in favor in sticking to this sunday.

Re: Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

Just take a decent umbrella or one of those waterproof jackets with a peaked cap.

This part of Switzerland and the Alsace is relatively pollution free (Novartis notwithstanding) so the rain won't burn holes in your head.

Just go out, do what you were going to do, except you can splash around a bit more in puddles, enjoy the smell of freshly watered countryside, and not worry about sunburn.

The monkeys will no doubt still be out and about; they're expecting Just Rose and can't wait to see her.

No I was wondering if it referred to some rich members of EF or you had completely misspelled "mirsky's"

Re: Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

Re: Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

i think this thread should be closed. silly to postpone for a few droplets of rain. we were all swiss and planned so far in advance that its just too late to cancel now! besides its not supposed to be cold so the rain might even be refreshing. And as someone said earlier u wont have to deal with a sunburn!

SEE YOU ALL SUNDAY!!!

My little monkey has voted to go anyway. A few drops of rain never hurt anyone.
Not sure we could make the other dates either. The 2 in June are both 'long weekends' so we'll probabaly have other things on and won't know about 29th May without asking hubby and he's currently in a plane somewhere over the Atlantic.

EDIT: And since when has the weather forecast been a reliable source of information about the weather.

Re: Postpone the leisurely day in Alsace?

It seams to me that the majority want's to keep the date and I agree.
And look, the swiss weather forecast already changed the weather for Basel on sunday from rainy to cloudy! Here's hoping!
