Except for a brief spell one afternoon, I don’t think it has rained in The Hague for at least a month and a half. Perhaps that figure isn’t 100% correct, but you get the idea. Over the weekend I was running errands and I was disturbed to realize the pavement stones were so sticky in some spots that my shoes were getting sucked in. Ew.
But finally, tonight, the pavement gets a good cleaning:
Bring on the rain! And thunder too. There is never enough thunder and lightning in this country.
