And there was snow…

A couple of weeks ago the Siberian winter finally overtook the Netherlands with below zero (-0) temperatures.

Here in the Netherlands the snow wasn’t as heavy as in other countries, but it sure was a great deal of enjoyment for some of us living here. It was fun see, to admire and to play with; as it was also great to have had several dry, rainless and clear days for a change.
