This morning Luzern’s lovely mount, Pilatus, has received the visit of an unexpected visitor: snow…
Really? I mean really?!
It had to be now?
I believe somebody up there didn’t quite get the meaning of fall (nor autumn ha!)
Yes, 2013 has been a bizarre and unusual year in Switzerland: a long & tough winter, no spring, late summer and early winter.
Oh come on! Who am in kidding?! This was a typical Swiss understanding of the four seasons…
However we barely had time to stock up on vitamin D for this winter and I did wonder this morning in the elevator how I would survive a 7-month winter!
I might have expressed my doubts out loud in this exact elevator to a coworker because a voice arrogantly told me ‘what a positive attitude!’.
Turned around to discover a horrifying unnaturally tanned woman – how on earth can she even walk after spending so much time on a sun bed?!
I found it quite offensive and hypocritical of this creature to criticize my position so early in the morning (I still believe 9 am is relatively early!).
Especially when she cannot accept being white and her happiness seems to depend on the doses of UV and vitamin D she can get from an artificial light!
But hey my doubts and complaints didn’t last long because this wave of cold can only mean one thing: Glühwein, cheese fondue and raclette season has officially started.
Time of snugging the blanket up to your chin on a comfy couch without feeling guilty nor lazy is also upon us!! Alleluja!
I agree this could be much worth but I’m a fervent supporter of sun and warmth so I do count the days down to my flight to South East Asia!
Happy trails and remember: Carpe Diem!
