the swiss hairdryer wind disease = Föhn

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.

  1. We say Föhn for hairdryer in Sweden as well. :)

    The only difference is that it’s spelled without the h (fön).

  2. Seriously, it’s one convenient excuse! :)
