This morning’s heavy snowfall over much of the Netherlands caused few serious problems on the roads and railways, although hundreds of flights were cancelled at Schiphol airport.

I can’t say I’m overly convinced of the Netherlands idea of a “blizzard” when I can still see grass under the snow coverage.

So far the canals seem a long way from frozen over. (Though I still hold out hope for a repeat of last February again this season!)

I’m glad I wasn’t bicycling anywhere as it seems a bit slippery to me, but it didn’t seem to be bothering the locals.

And I’ll be looking forward to more of the white stuff so I can have a good snowball fight with Himself, and build a snowman!

Until then though, the world is incredibly peaceful and serene under its white blanket.

I’m hoping for more, and better photos with the next snowfall. You know, when I remember to charge my camera battery, and clear the memory card!
