Actually I find it exciting and also realised I need to clear the garden up of loose items. Otherwise it could look like scene from Wizard of Oz.

Possibly..it's not as bad as yet..supposedly, it's going to get real ugly tomorrow though. If this weather keeps up, we'll have to plan our next couple of EF events in a bunker.
Do you think my curry could blow the storm away?

You curry is beyond slight peril..as a matter of fact, it should be classified as atomic! So yes, it would blow away this storm...and no, surprisingly enough, I don't need an alka-seltzer.
(TMI: It's definitley going to burn when exiting the premises..)

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

15 minute walk to work, pants are soaked as if I went swimming, the rest almost soaked though, the umbrella pretty much served to keep my head dry (but my hair is wet from washing anyway ). I think I counted 3 people who had their umbrella flip inside out- probably more, but most of the journey I had mine in front of me so didn't see much. Where's the snow?

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

A gust of wind lifted me off the waterfront in Brunnen and set me down gently in Seelisberg - all at no cost. I'm waiting for the next gust to bring me back across the stormy waters of vierwaldstättersee. Blown' in the wind in the innerschweiz....

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

Well no real wind or rain or any sign of a storm. Just like being in England with this weather. Grey and drizzly

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

Totally calm in Zurich West.... but many flights have been cancelled today already at Zurich Airport. Some friends just had their mid day flight to Amsterdam cancelled, due to "bad weather in amsterdam"

We're having quite a bit of wind and heavy rain, south of Bern. Very unpleasant.

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

I have just been blown over our garden wall into the meadow! I was trying to rescue our childrens' Big Bobby Blue slide and it and me got blown over and I ended up in a very ungraceful heap in the field with the slide well .. straddling me .

Thank God the neighbours were out.

OH is sitting at Heathrow waiting for his flight to Zurich but the time just keeps getting put back. It's already over an hour late and he hasn't even been given a gate yet.
Weather is perfect in London so it must be due to bad weather en route if Zurich is OK.

It's absolutely awful in Neuchatel and has been all day. (and all of last night)
