Where in Switzerland are you hiking, Joe Offer? Which canton? Supposed to be breathtaking to look at.

Somewhere, reading an English-language article, I stumbled across a story and embedded in it was a description of an Alpine sign:

Geh' hinauf in die Berge!
Deine Seele braucht es
und dein Körper auch.

Over the past couple of weeks we have had our first two frosts of the year. Today is overcast, a few drops of rain fell earlier and the weekend forecast is for proper rain. As the drought has been biting hard here - Tamworth, north-western New South Wales - for a couple of years, this rain will be very welcome!

Apart from drought, and water restrictions (we aren't allowed to use town water outside for any purpose at all, no car washing, definitely no watering of gardens although some of us sneak a few occasional drops onto cherished potted plants) life here in the Small Smoke is great.

the weekend has arrived & rain falls everywhere.

email I wrote yesterday -
Last night the heavens opened at 2.20am & as I was still listening to Niagara falling at 3, I got up - & the rain kept falling yesterday & is still falling today.

Yesterday I went to an 80th birthday lunch & carried my raincoat as it wasn't raining when I arrived, & had stopped by the time I left! Lucky me, folks who left at different times ran the gauntlet of heavy rain, & my driver had to avoid fallen branches in the carpark & on the road.

100s ordered to evacuate & 1000s call for help as wild weather intensifies check out the pics including lots of twitter pics

The rain covers most the the east coast of Australia & as always happens State Emergency Services have so far rescued 77 drivers who drove thru flood waters, contrary to official advice.

video and lyrics - At the Drop of a Hat

Both:         January brings the snow,
        Makes your feet and fingers glow.
        
        February's ice and sleet,
        Freeze the toes right off your feet.
        
        Welcome, March, with wint'ry wind,
        Would thou wert not so unkind.
        
        April brings the sweet spring showers,
        On and on for hours and hours.
        
        Farmers fear unkindly May,
        Frost by night and hail by day.
        
        June just rains and never stops,
        Thirty days and spoils the crops.
        
        In July the sun is hot,
Flanders:         Is it shining?
Swann:         No it's not!
        
Both:         August, cold and dank and wet,
        Brings more rain than any yet.
        
        Bleak September's mist and mud,
        Is enough to chill the blood.
        
        Then October adds a gale,
        Wind and slush and rain and hail.
        
        Dark November brings the fog,
        Should not do it to a dog.
        
        Freezing wet December, then...
        Bloody January again!
        
        (January brings the snow),
        (Makes your feet and fingers glow!)

We had proper rain over the weekend without the storms which battered the coast (a benefit of living a few hours inland) and local farmers are feeling more optimistic than they have done for quite some time.

So are the rest of us.

The cool nights we are having are such a boon and a blessing. It won't be long at all, as summer wears on, until even the nights are warm, humid, and stifling, and my apartment will require the refrigerated air going all night long in order to sleep comfortably. But for now, the windows are shut, the air conditioner is silent, the fan is off, and it's ever so much more peaceful at night.

It was cool and comfortable at the New Bedford Folk Festival today, but it looks like it'll rain there tomorrow. The two largest stages are indoors at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the Zeiterion Theater, the others, except for the smallest one, are under tents. Attendance will probably be down, so most people should be able to get seats indoors or inside the tents. It may be tough for the vendors, though.

Lightning must have struck very close to our house while we were away at our grand-daughter's birthday party yesterday. It tripped a bunch of circuit breakers and ground fault circuit interrupters, blew about a dozen light bulbs, and blew the fuse in one of my potter's wheels. Amazingly, nothing with integrated circuitry got blasted. Computer, TV, DVD player, and computer-controlled pottery kilns are all fine.

I am in Rijeka, in Croatia at the top end of the Adriatic. We've got the "bura", the cold north wind off the Alps that the north of Dalmatia sometimes gets, but not usually this cold and this windy at this time of year. It's warmer in Edinburgh, and rather disappointing after Budapest where the 30C+ heat had most of the younger Hungarian women sashaying down the street in very brief hotpants or what looked like French knickers.

Yesterday morning was the coldest morning of the year so far, minus 3.8 deg C with a heavy frost. It was very pretty and white, but it was very cold too!

I truly can't imagine what it would like to live in a climate which gets several feet of snow each winter. I feel the cold, but I don't mind winter - you can always add another layer or two but in summer there are limits as to what can be removed, in public at least - however compared to some parts of the world our winters are quite mild.

Positively benign, in fact.
