This afternoon in Kanton Aargau and in Kanton Zurich it started – for the first time this year – to snow. In Argau it was slow at first but soon in Baden and Brugg everything was covered in white. And tonight it continued so maybe tomorrow everything will be white.

In Zurich it continued to snow tonight too, but the streets were clean and not yet so “Christmassy”. But the sounds were softened and the sky was  thick and grey. The city had a certain romantic charm.

Anyway this snow took everyone – me included – a little by surprise: that reminds me that two things should always be ready in a Swiss home. An umbrella and footwear to walk on the snow. Preferably a very fashionable one.
