Today, January 17, 2016, the nature has made an unexpected move. Last night a very thin layer of snow lay on the ground, for the first time in this winter.
Now that October has come, the summer is finally here. The last time it visited us was in April. After that I couldn’t say we ever had summer weather in the past months. Temperature would hardly rise above 21—22° C (70—72° F), and mainly kept around 16—18° C (61—64° F), especially during August and September.
But the last two days of September happened to be really warm, and on the first of October temperature soared to 26° C (79° F) again.
What else could one do on such a lazy Saturday than simply go to the coast?
Yesterday’s Easter has set up a temperature record in the Netherlands in the whole KNMI (Royal Meteorological Institute) observation history since 1901.
