The Swiss (and Austrian) Mountains

Just dropping in quickly with a spontaneous post. It is dedicated to our Gary of bereavedsingledad.blog. He is a big fan of Switzerland and I told him about the view I have from my house towards the mountains. (I am living in Liechtenstein which is right in between Austria and Switzerland.) Gary asked me to share some photos. Since the weather is not so good right now, I decided to dig out some winter photos I took some years ago.

Second Onset Of Winter

20170419_072910.jpg

Yesterday was the second day when winter showed us that it was not willing to let spring reign. I woke up to a completely white world (as you can see on the picture above – usually this tree stands completely upright) and it was snowing all day and sometimes even worse than in winter itself. We were lucky over here since the roads were in good conditions. But there was chaos only a few kilometers west of us on the streets and highways in Switzerland. I was almost alone at work because people could not even get out of their garages and it was too dangerous to drive with summer wheels – which meanwhile each car has at this time of the year. It is nature, so what? And it basically doesn’t influence my mood but it resulted in some damages. Read more ›

Winter Wonderland…

20170115_123028

It has stopped snowing last night and today it all truly looks like a winter wonderland. Since the streets are free of snow again, I wouldn’t mind it staying like this for a while. But the sun already does its job. I am glad I could catch some nice views for you again.

Snow, snow, snow…

20170114_094038The past two to three days we had some milder weather due to the warm air stream we get at times. It is called “Foehn” and can turn out to a huge warm storm. Even in winter, it can cause temperatures here in the alps up to 15 °C (about 60 °F). We only got 3 – 5 °C which was already nice. But yesterday within only 2 hours the Foehn broke down and the weather changed dramatically into storms with snow falls. It all calmed down by last evening. But during the night heavy snowfall started again and it has not stopped yet! Read more ›

Our Ski Region – Malbun/Liechtenstein

Next week my youngest son is skiing with his class all week long. He is not a ski fan (as no one of us is) but he had to practice a little in order to get the feeling again. It was a beautiful day.

The village is called Malbun and it is our ski region. On the photo, you see one of the ski pistes. It is a small one.  The bigger ones are in the background and on the side above and behind the trees. Read more ›

Finally! Our Christmas Lights Within The Snow!

I don’t participate in Throwback Thursday. But it just made sense to me to share a post from last year. We still don’t have any snow but I would love to share our Christmas lights with you. Last year we did not have snow until December 26th. But then it started snowing and did not stop for days. See here: Read more ›

The different Tidbit – The Stunt!

My parents’ house is up on a hill. That is not such a problem after I was able to drive a car in order to not be that separated from the fun areas anymore. The only problem was a long, completely straight and very steep street in winter. Read more ›
