Sunny Days

Mar 12th 2007

I have been able to sit outside the last two days. It has been so beautiful! I love sitting in the sun and reading or doing Sudoku puzzles. Bowie lays out with me and we enjoy the birds singing for us.

The weather experts say that the weather we are having now is what normally comes at the end of April. Wonder what the spring/summer will bring this year after such a mild winter.

Winter of 2006


This winter (in Holland) has been the mildest ever according to KNMI. Since the time we started measuring in 1706 it has not been this warm.

The meteorological winter ends today. The average temperature was 6,5 degrees and the normal temperature is 3,3. One day there was some ‘serious’ snow and 15 days it froze. Normally it freezes an average of 38 days.

The whole of 2006 was booked as an extreme warm year and it was the warmest year in three centuries. (Rtl)

Wind Warnings in Holland


The KNMI (weather bureau) has issued a weather warning for high winds for today – Jan 11th. They expect wind gusts of up to 110 km an hour along the coast.

Though the KNMI expected heavy traffic jams in the morning everything went as usual.

Yesterday on the news they were warning people not to ride bikes between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm due to winds. 😉 .

My doggie, Bowie will be getting very short walks till the wind dies down. 🙂 It is comforting to be sitting inside as the wind howls around our apartment.
