Sofietje lives on the heating these days because it is really cold outside here now, -10C (14F) last night. But the best part is we have no snow and bright sunshine all day so it is great to have a walk with a warm coat and hat. I have no other pictures of the cold because it looks like spring outside and no ice to see yet on the rivers because of a strong wind. Of course there is a media hype going on again about the chances of a "Elfstedentocht" (Eleven cities tour) of 200 km skating which can only be done in very cold winters. But we only have had four nights with frost, so what are they talking about.
