Stormy weather...

This huge secular tree - along with many, many others - was uprooted on Friday by a freaky storm over the Lausanne lake.

People here assure they have never seen anything like that before.

A gym colleague working in the insurance industry tells me that in the last 5 years these extreme weather events are becoming so frequent and unpredictable that the insurance industry is unable to handle this kind of business any longer, because forecasts are irremediably too optimistic and reality is always a lot worse.

All this spells "we are screwed"... and more than us, our children are screwed and - if anybody is still fool enough to put someone in this collapsing world - our grandchildren too are super-screwed.
