Spit and Drizzle

Zurich gets more rain than London. I read this in a guide book a couple months back. Reality does not dare to disappoint the facts. It has been spitting since 8am yesterday and raining non-stop since yesterday afternoon. And I mean non-stop. And it is now 3.15pm. To add to the gloominess, everyone walks the streets clad in black carrying black umbrellas. Sometimes Switzerland resembles a non-stop funeral procession.

Despite all the rain, since moving to Zurich over two years ago, I have only witnessed one or two actual thunderstorms. I have to say I miss the drama of a thunderstorm as well as its peaceful passing. Here, it just rains and rains and rains. No excitement. No reason for a dog or child to be scared. And no happy relief when it’s all over.

Nope. In Switzerland everything is neutral. Even the rain. Personally, I like a little action now and then. But the only action you get in Switzerland are swinging cranes and streets being dug up even though they were perfectly fine. But tonight I’ll try to be my most Swiss and really stare for a few minutes in admiration at that newly torn up street in front of my apartment as though it were the Taj Mahal. Hey, I’ve got to get my kicks somehow.
