This was one of the wettest and coldest New years periods we have had in Holland for many years. 2 or 3 years ago, the Daffodils were blooming on Jan 3rd.
The boat weathered the first storm very well. The second one, which became a code Orange it survived also very well. Only ‘damage’ were the bike were moved by the wind, luckily they were securely attached to the railing, so they did not went into the water. (Unlike the lock keys with Lew dropped when he visited. Instead of using the designated keys with the floater, he used the emergency keys, and yes they went into the water, for a more peaceful and quiet life)
The second storm was quite violent, trucks blown of the road, roofs separating from buildings.
