Wintertime, snow walls and records

While in Goms, Switzerland the snow already stacks up to 2.5 metres, one
would think, it’s unbelievable. In Japan, however, the mountains and the ocean
weather streams allow much higher snow records. up to 15(!) metres the snow
may pile up there and the streets are still passable. You don’t believe it?

Wintertime, Snow, storm and rain

The weather in Switzerland could not be more different. While
villages in higher regions are almost cut off from the rest of the
country due to heavily snow-blocked roads, in other regions a
storm called “Andrea” brought rain and heavy winds.

Comet Lovejoy on December 22nd, 2011

Comets can be rarely seen and in the past, there were not many pics or even videos
available. However in the change of time, more and more equipment makes it possible
to catch these rare moments when extraterrestial events occur, such as falling stars.
A brasilian observatory has put such a timeshifting video online for your pleasure.

Snow, trams and herd behavior…

So it is winter… finally! Every year the people are hoping for snow for christmas here in Bern.
This year it’s a bit late as the last two days were the only days where we got 10cm of snow!
Although show is a synonym for delayed traffic, cars, busses, trams, no matter what, people
should usually know how to prepare for it and try to reduce delay times as good as possible.

December… warmth, lack of snow…

Well… it’s december now but when you look outside, the green meadows and
rather warm temperatures don’t make you feel the winter coming at all. Now
while Switzerland usually tends to have the first snow in November-beginning
this year the snow has some hold-up. Maybe a hint from global warming?

Last year, deep winter, this year, not?

Well, the weather is kinda odd this year. Horror news about increasing climatic temps,
more greenhouse gas effect and the ongoing pollution of the earth are probably the
cause for this year’s winter to start later. Or finally never… who knows. At least the
temperatures are rather mild for November. So hopefully winter will still come.

Why deep autumn makes depressive!

You all know this. It’s around mid of November and the environment
starts to be everyday in grey. Cold temperatures of about 5
degrees, fog, moist and slippery sidewalks make you wanna
sleep all day long. Also it’s the time where the most projects run.

Better check where you grab your money!

Today I spotted a video that made me think about reptiles again. Well, in Spain
it seems, some snakes prefer the money output slot to hold a rest or something
else they’re doing in there. At least a viper is a poisonous snake and you’d
prefer not to be bitten by such one. Especially not when you’re on vacation.

People eat different food on different continents. You probably have heard of
people eating worms, locusts and other rather disgusting “meals”. In this case
it seems that the video channel ownler likes fresh and live food!

Apple… you can’t be serious!

Apple has done many lawsuits in the past. And one was about their logo where
it was hard for me to find similarities that may infringe with patents or copy-
rights of the Apple company in Cupertino (read here). This time I think, they’ve
gone too far! A small tea room owner got sued for her logo she has patented.

Discovering Bern with Rosiv

Although The one day was real short for a tour thru Bern, I decided to show Rosiv
some places I really like about Bern. So our tour mostly went thru the old town of
Bern. Starting at Zytglogge walking down to the Münster then going on to the
Bärengraben. Later we went down to the Matte (a borough of Bern) to the Aare.

Turkeys are peaceful birds… NOT!

Turkeys are shy birds… indeed. However one bird, called the “Terrible Tim”
seems to have found a place to live in a domestic environment yet seems to
live the turkey habits such as “pecking-order” and the usual wildlife habits,
turkeys tend to have when in a wildlife areal.

Autumn and winter at the same time?

Impossible, you say? Well, seems not. In Switzerland at higher exposed locations, the
temperatures have dropped below zero. Snow fell down under 1000 metres and in some
locations, the fresh snow amount was 70 cm and up. A cold wave from the north brought
polar air to the south over Europe and temperatures have dropped by 15 to 25 °C.

Nature and it’s strangest forms

There are strange tales around with dancing squids after they’ve been served
and frog legs that still tend to move even without body. Unbelievable? I also
thought, that’s total bullsh*t until I saw the following video!
WARNING: People with sensible stomach should not view this!

The golden October…

Yesterday I decided again to visit the Gurten, a local mountain of Bern. Very
quickly to reach thanks to the excellent public mass transit system and even
the train up to the Gurten is covered by my subscription ticket. Finally the
weather also meant well with around 20 degrees. Time to hike then!

A real moving story about a faithful cat

Why write about a cat? Or even post a video about it. Cats are ordinary pets.
All good arguments and true but this feline is a real special one. This cat
brings her holder to a metro station in Melbourne and waits for her until
the evening. The whole day… and without any trouble. Heart-touching I say!

Einstein’s theory of lightspeed falsified?

You all know the theory that light is the fastest possible “element” existing.
Albert Einstein has described in 1916 that nothing can be faster than the
light itself. Hereby the famous formula E=mc² has been created in which the
speed of light is measured to be exactly 299’792.658 km per second.

Well… looks like the summer is slowly passing as today it was rather cold. The weather
forecasts brought up that in the eastern parts of switzerland, snowfall border has
lowered to a mere 1000 metres above sea level. This meant chaos at Gotthard- and
Sustenpass (which connect central switzerland with Ticino / Italy) where travellers

The nature and the Guinness World Records

The nature always has some strange yet spectacular things to offer. One of them
might grow on the hands of Chris Walting, a 45-years-old female singer from
Las Vegas. She has officially entered the Guinness Book Of Records when she
had her nails measured in New York. Her nails have grown for 18 years now!

Quick and painless…

…that’s what you would think of if you read these values: 6.4 metres long,
1070 kg heavy and a 70 cm long gorge with many spiky teeth. But having
killed a Buffalo and a fisherman, this big saltwater crocodile can be for sure
considered vicious and being described as a real beast!

The sunny side of Bern

I like the moderate, yet sunny weather of Bern. Warm, yet not
grilling. I hate hot and dense weather where Temperatures are
above 32 degrees celsius and humidity above 70% like the last
week where exactly such conditions have dominated the day!

Spectacular video from vulcan Etna!

Italy’s most active vulcan Etna is active again. The vulcan is situated on Sicily
and with 3.323m over sea level probably also the highest of Europe. The
video shows a very spectacular eruption again. Beautiful to look at but you
don’t want to be there right now if you’re not intended to be grilled…

The nature and their secrets…

Today I stumbled over a really frightening article on my favourite news portal.
You all know wasps. Tiny yellow-black, really annoying buzzers whose stings can be
real painful. They bother you when you’re eating, they bother you even when you’re
just sunbathing. So what am I talking about now? Anything bigger? A hornet? Nope!!!

Hurricane Irene at the east coast of USA

While news have spread the word, a hurricane is on it’s way to the upper east coast of
the USA. They say that the storm is a category 3 storm that may also reach category 4.
With 1300 km diameter (that’s pretty large if you ask me!) it is also dangerous to a large
area. Well… in New York and New Jersey, there’s big evacuation and alert!

Crazy weather…

Just 2 days ago I juiced out at 34 °C barely knowing how to cool down except to take a cold
shower or drink cold water and today the news spread that temperatures may fall by 20 °C
that also leads to snowfalls in the more exponented areas such as mountain passes or higher
situated villages such as Davos for example.
