Beautiful Weather

We've had this kind of weather all week and it should hold until the weekend! This pic was taken from the balcony at work towards the northeast around 1 pm. The sun was too bright to try a shot towards the south...

It's kind of sad that it's actually exciting to have a few days in a row where it's not gray and damp...I guess that's winter in Basel for you!

Michael said...

Yeah yeah, like I care the sun was too bright..... : -)

Is that a greenhouse out there? I was wondering where all those gasses they're complaining about were coming from and I think I can tell them now.

Yes, it's a nusery - or greenhouse, but has nothing to do with the company I work for. And believe me at this time of year, when the sun is really low, all you would have seen is a glow. :-)

yeah!!! It's my inspiration photo! Well we are at 24 days of rain here in Vancouver. So Basel is a bit better than here for sure. I am told maybe I will wake up to a birthday sky full of sun and blue...

Oh... you mean Basel weather isn't good?

I'm amazed by the good weather here, but I lived in Holland for 10 yearsso my perspective might be a little off. Aside from it being dark all the time in the winter (which it is in Holland, too), it doesn't rain nearly as much.

CanadianSwiss said...

Expat- I hope you do wake up to a sunny day. Wouldn't that be a nice birthday present?

Rebecca - Usually, there is much more rain here during the winter, although it's not as bad Frankfurt and above that.

hey ms. canadianswiss, there is a BIG mistake in your last report about bad fischau-brunn and wr.neustadt: the little village where we are living is bad fischau-brunn (http://www.bad-fischau-brunn.at) and here are living just 2.668 people, in 1.250 houses. and a lot of them are just weekendhouses for poeple from vienna. the city we were eating in the hobel&scher and we had the wiener schnitzel is "wiener neustadt" (http://wienerneustadt.at), and yes, THERE are living around 45.000 people. but it seems to be that close, that you didn´t realize, that we left bad fischau and entered wiener neustadt ... opay, next time you visit austria i´ll show you the "borderline" ;-)

Sorry, Pinki! It was late when I wrote the actual post on Tuesday night and probably too early the next day when I checked for spelling mistakes before posting it. Orange actually mentioned it and I forgot to change it this morning.

CS - we got sun this morning. Like blue sky and clouds all around and no rain clouds that I can see.

By the way is it Orange X who changed your top theme? I love it! How in the heck do you do that? From someone who knows about most of this stuff, I've never tried... Silly..
