First snow!

After a pretty soft winter this morning the first snow came at last. With very low temperatures at night still -10 C (14F) and -3 C (26.6)  during daytime, we jumped right into chaos. The whole country came to a standstill, trains had delays, cars stood in endless trafic-jams from 9 till 5. Thank goodness we don't have to go to work anymore.

The snow felt for hours with a pretty strong wind and I think we have some 5 cm now. I enjoy it, feel always excited, that the environment can change so quickly as you can see at my last post of yesterday, when the sun was shining.

And there is always a car that won't go.

  7. It sure looks cold and dangerous. It is good that you don't have to go to work.

  8. Het was zeker een chaos gisteren maar wel prachtig als je niet de weg op moest. Ik ben er wel even uit geweest maar wat was het koud.

    Fijn weekend!
