We went out for our usual walk today. The sun was beautiful but the Bise? Oof! Bitingly cold. Wikipedia tells us the Bise (say it like, Beezeh) is , “a northern wind, cold and generally dry… In Switzerland the bise blows from the north-east, above all during the winter months, and is due to a high-pressure cell north-west of Switzerland.”
It also says that you feel the Bise most in Geneva, due to the way the land lies or something. Yikes. It’s cold enough of a wind here already. It cut right through my fleece jacket today. My arms are only just getting the feeling back in them.
