…wait five minutes.
How many people in how many places try to claim this saying for their meteorological patterns? I’ve encountered many hyperbolic uses of it. If there is a German version of the adage, however, I think Zürchers deserve to employ it. The weather here lately has been as changeable and chameleonic as Lady Gaga’s fascinators. I can leave my house for a short run on a perfectly sunny afternoon and find myself caught in a crazy downpour before I’ve reached home.
Now that it’s June, we’re eager to begin our season of weekend hiking. But the forecast for the past few Sundays has been for rain, and because of the tendency for said rain to be so sudden and so severe (unlike the all-day, lighter rain we became accustomed to in Vancouver) we’ve been holding off on far-away hikes and hanging out in Zürich instead. And our walks around here have been perfectly lovely, if intermittently rainy. Here are some pictures taken along the way…hope you enjoy them.
