Blossom rain

Cycling to work today, a brisk but warm breeze came against me, just as I was passing by a row of trees in bloom. Moments like that are too surprising, too short and too rare to catch on film or show to friends, but the image is still on my mind. I will dream of it again, reminded by photos like this of awesome cherry blossoms.

560km traffic jam

Holland has a serious traffic problem. Too many people commute by car every day, leading to very dense traffic on the highway and frequent traffic jams. When the weather changes rapidly or turns bad, like in the winter, it is even worse. Yesterday, after one and a half month of no rain, the sky opened for a refreshing day of rain. The traffic was affected by this to a total of 560km of traffic jam in the morning, where there is usually 'only' 180km on a normal day. The 560km of trapped cars made it to the top ten of the worst traffic jams ever in Holland.

Rainy day

As much as it was sunshine yesterday, it is raining today. It is not a nice weather for walking unless you have both raintrousers and umbrella. I have an umbrella.
