No matter the weather, the handyman knows that if he is called upon, he can’t call off. So off he goes!
Beware of the ultimate art of keeping balanced on your fancy bike: riding a slippery and snow-layered surface, steering your bike with one hand, while carrying wooden planks on your shoulder (probably to build a sauna at home, or something: man is it cold these days in Amsterdam!!)
The cold and white feeling we missed for Xmas is in town since a week, Amsterdammers love it and keep on cycling very chic!
Yesterday night, the national institute for weather issued a “code orange”. This doesn’t mean the celebration of a winter Queensday (although it would be fun!) but it is an extreme weather warning. So in other words: it’s gonna snow big time. “If possible stay home” said the weather man, and so did I! These pictures were thus taken from my balcony with a cup of hot chocolate waiting for me on my desk.. Respect to all the snow-cyclists out there!
As in most of Europe, Amsterdam is still wearing a white blanket. It is so cold that nobody wants to go out apart for real emergencies: empty fridge alert!
