Frozen canals (Or: Tempting fate in Rijswijk)

This picture is from last week, from the nearby city of Rijswijk. Unfortunately the Netherlands is currently warming up again, so most of the ice has melted.

Marco reported that there were no… accidents… or falling through the ice while he was watching. Since Friday it has been warmer, so the chance of skating on natural ice is pretty low until it turns colder again.

  1. My four year old daughter was very upset that she won’t get to try out the skates Sinterklaas brought her.

    • Awww. Has she learned how to ice skate yet, or is she in for some wooden chair lessons? (I always find that so cute!)
