>Just as you can’t escape the mountains,
you can’t escape the electrical wires either. Many streets also have overhead wires off which the buses and streetcars run. But I’m a fan of streetcars. Like lots of other things, one overlooks them and forgets they are there, until a photograph is taken.
The Föhn winds brought the temperature well up into the 40s F and melted all of the snow under 1000 meters. No one imagines this will last, it’s always temporary, but a wonderful reminder of what spring will feel like, when it finally comes.
