Hello all and greetings from the sunny mountains of Switzerland. Very sunny but not a whole lot of snow – at least there is no snow other than on the glacier which is odd for this time of the year. The soothsayers are out and apparently it is all dependent on the moon – and the 8th of December is the day for the big snowfall. In the interim there was a dusting last night which has made the conditions most agreeable. It was shockingly windy on Tuesday and all cats could have been skinned. None around so all felines were spared in the making of this posting. The cable car passes up and down by this little hill each day – quite a beautiful way to go to work I think.
