must be heavy

When I went out this morning I was excited. Because it’s so white outside! Netherlands has been experiencing snow the past few days and it’s actually annusual the amount we’re getting right now. We live in the part where 2cm snowfall is the norm. But this year we’re getting 20cm! And in some parts of the country people are reporting to having up to 60cm deep snow!

Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium have suspended flights due to the heavy snow. People are advised to remain home and not drive unless it’s necessary. I had to beg my husband to cancel his tomorrow’s appointment because I knew this weather is here to stay for a while. I’m glad he listened because normally he’ll turn a deaf earĀ  especially if it concerns work, that’s how serious he is when it comes to appointments, by hook or by crook he’ll go.

Anyhow, it has stopped snowing for half a day now but tonight it will begin again and it’s predicted that we’ll get a white Christmas this year!

Yesterday (20 dec.) it snowed the whole day long. The day before that we already got about 4 cm snow and yesterday’s snow just added to it. I kind of like this powdery snow, dry and not slippery to walk on (yeah I’m afraid to walk on wet snow! blame it on my flat feet :P )

Anyhow, in this part of Holland, Zuidwest (South-West) we sure do not get much of snow even when most part of the country is white blanketed already so seeing this much of snow is something else. 20cm! In some provinces people are claiming to have 60cm of it.

I thought I’d take photos of my legs covered with snow. See the difference? After these shots I of course went immediately home to thaw my feet, brrr!
