Although it is still cold here, we cycled yesterday14 kilometres to keep the muscles flexible. At the shores of the dike along the Gooi-lake we saw these icy statues which is very unusual at this time of the year. At night it is still freezing and the day temperature is only 5 degrees C. The cold arctic wind we have for weeks now keeps the cold here, but the end of the week it will hopefully disappear.
It is a strange phenomenon to have ice in April, but everybody is so fed up with the cold here and want some
warm spring days. It will also lead to heavy losses for the flower and garden enterprises because nobody buys anything to put in a freezing garden.
