I agree. Some main roads have been numbered using letters as prefix:
J = Jura moutain range
T = Tal (valley), roads in the plateau
A = Alpen (like the A28)
H = Hauptstrasse used sometimes to not use the A to avoid confusion with motorways (Autobahnen/Autoroutes/Autostrade)

Switzerland makes a distinction between its administrative road numbers (J, T, Alpenstrasse, N) and the road numbers that are actually signposted (Autobahn/Autostrasse in a red shield, H in a blue shield). Each Hauptstrasse has an underlying J, T or A-number that is often completely different. Almost each Autobahn has an underlying N-number (exceptions would be Cantonal motorways like the A50). In the past, one or two J-routes were signposted as such, but if I understand correctly, those signs are now a thing of the past.

In any event, most Swiss roads are numbered somehow, either with a national number of a cantonal number. There is just one problem: the Swiss are poor at signposting those numbers. If you take an exit from the motorway, the number of the intersecting road is never signposted. Even at a motorway intersection, the numbers are often not indicated. H-numbers above 30 are hardly ever signposted. The H-numbers below 30 are supposed to be the most important non-motorways, but they too are poorly signposted. It's just something you can't rely on in Switzerland. The good news is that you can generally rely on the focal points in Switzerland. When driving through the country, better focus on them ...

Around noon. Maybe the snow was too bright or something.

My camera has a special snow mode. With that much snow cameras have a lot of problems with the white balance.

Very convenient fuel prices in Switzerland:

Gasoline € 0,95 (45 cents cheaper than NL).
Diesel € 1,00 (similar to NL)

Yes, that's right, but pay in chf, otherwise you will be clearly disadvantaged by the exchange rate petrol stations practice if you pay in euro.

The Züricher Tagesanzeiger did a little test in the city.

Oh yes, the Gubristtunnel is a nightmare. The article said it would've been 25 minutes without the traffic jam at the northern bypass. But Zürich is working on a thirds Gubristtunnel.

Oh, it's in the morning rush hour, I didn't notice that. Although, wouldn't then be even longer through the city? I didn't know there were such jams before the Gubristtunnel; each tube has three lanes, and I was never in a jam there (I don't remember driving there in rush hours though).

No, the Gubristtunnel has only 2x2 lanes, and the traffic volumes are above 100.000, kinda Dutch actually

Looks like my memory isn't serving me well, I've driven through it many times.
