A record autumn

While euro and dollar are enjoying a record growth in Russia, we’re enjoying one of the warmest autumns on record here in Holland, yet again. Whatever caused it, sanctions or global warming.

On the 1st of November a weather station in Ell, which is at the very south of the country, has registered the highest temperature ever, 22° C (72° F). Unbelievable.

It’s a perfect weather to take a walk in nature. The Heidestein estate is just about a Buk’s throw away from our place. Further on it merges into the Utrecht Hill Ridge (known for their pyramids).

A similar phenomenon was also on November 2, as well as the rest of the autumn 2014.

The nature responds to the unprecedented warmth with a multitude of colours.

It’s a challenge for some.

The last summer was also unusually warm and sunny. On June 19th, the day of our housewarming party, the temperature hit 33° C (91° F) in the shade. It’s extremely hot for these latitudes, especially considering our typical humidity of 200% it felt like a sauna.

However it’s back on track now and thermometer readings fall in a customary range of 12-15° C (54-59° F).

More autumn colours.
More autumn colours.

But the humidity is always there. Just as before.
