So winter’s really arrived, it seems.
You wake up to a snowstorm, you go to bed with a snowstorm, and pretty soon you can’t leave the house because the fifty centimeters of snow are blocking the door. That isn’t my case, but I’m sure it happens occasionally… somewhere. Over here in the Netherlands though, things are still pretty white.
As predicated, quite a decent amount of snow fell this morning (or last night, whatever). During the day the temperature raised ever so slightly, causing some of the snow (especially the snow on the roads) to melt and flow away. Lucky, I didn’t have to traverse this freezing hell today, but I will have to tomorrow. Biking to the train station won’t be the biggest challenge, but I should be wary of slippery frozen spots anyway, especially those bumps of snow that got frozen over.
I do wonder what’ll happen with the public transport though. I go to school mostly by train, and though other countries handle it fine, the trains over here are known to drop dead at the sight of even the tiniest amount of snow hitting the rails. If I can even get to school tomorrow, I sure do hope I’ll be able to get back as well!
You’ll hear from me tomorrow how it all went. I’ve held a grudge against the dreadful combination of public transport and rough weather conditions for three years now, even though I haven’t experienced it much during most of that time. Will the grudge prove justified? Will the trains be stuffed to the brim with people? Will Fang ever be productive?
