Delayed exploding snowman predicts poor summer
It’s going to be a poor summer. That’s according to an exploding snowman.
At the traditional Sechseläuten festival in Zurich a large artificial snowman is burnt – and depending on how long it takes for the head to explode will predict if we are going to have a hot summer.
The so called Böögg took 20 minutes and 31 seconds to go bang – which is long. Last year it took half that time – and the summer was hot.
Maybe it’s not complete nonsense. Yesterday was overcast with light rain - which may have dampened the fire a bit and delayed the grand finale.
