Amsterdammers experienced a few atmospheric transitions the last couple of weeks. The Dutch love to talk about the weather, but that doesn't imply they hate it. Otherwise they wouldn't keep on riding as they do. We went from 'just a particularly cold fall'... Amsterdamized Amsterdamized Amsterdamized Amsterdamized Amsterdamized Amsterdamized To our first snow... Fur Old & New Good Fr8 To just bone-chilling crispyness... Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam Frosty Amsterdam To a bit of slippin' & sliding'...as the City of Amsterdam deemed it unnecessary to clear the paths on a massive scale. Or more precise: they looked at the 2-day forecast and figured it would melt away fast enough. Wrong. Fail. Think ahead a little more & you can imagine frozen sleet. And fewer people having to make use of the first aid. More on that in the next post. Lauren & I managed (on our Sinterklaas shopping spree), although she did fall in a slow turn. Aside from that, the city does look extra pretty in white. My favorite season.
