Jul’s article about her falling victim to the Swiss hairdryer wind disease made me smile. Living in NYC, I miss being able to say “Oh, it’s the Föhn!” Read her blogpost, you’ll understand what I am talking about.
Also, here’s a Wikipedia entry about the mysterious Föhn Wind.
We say Föhn for hairdryer in Sweden as well. :)
The only difference is that it’s spelled without the h (fön).
