Winter in the Netherlands

Skating on the Paterswoldse Lake

Warming climate or not, fact is that the winters are colder as we used to have. And a real winter in the Netherlands means long traffic jams on the roads due to 10cm of snow, no trains because of frozen rails (or something like that). But also skating on every bit of frozen water we can find. We’re a real skating country. I must admit, I prefer taking pictures above gliding on those narrow irons myself, but it’s still really nice to see. Here a typical picture of a group of people cleaning the skating route with a Dutch windmill in the background. Here some more pictures of today.
