On Saturday we had the hottest first of November in the Netherlands since they started measuring in 1904. Today though it's cooled down and in a few days it'll be back to the usual temperatures for November, 11 C max.

The temperature has dropped in the last couple of days, and it's quite cold now. I've succumbed, and put the heating on. :cold:

It's got quite cold here too! Brrr :(.

We have applied for a little heater in the bakery, but the guy was supposed to come and have a look at the chimney and such, but he didn't show up :banghead:, now he'll come another time. I hope it'll all be sorted before Christmas tbh, so that on Christmas we can sit around the warm heater.

Athena, you have to apply for a heater? You can't just buy one and set it up?

Woke up yesterday to temps in the 20's. I'm not complaining, it's so much different then we're used to.

Hmm I think maybe I didn't translate correctly :blush2:. We bought one but they have to come and set it up (so we don't have it yet). There needs to be some work done on the pipes (by them). So we agreed what it all would be but they still have to call us to make an appointment on when they're going to do this. They expect in the second week of December. I hope to have it by Christmas at least!

It's about -5C with light snow here.

 

However, the pictures below are a mere 10 miles or so from where I am. They got 48 inches of snow overnight and the national guard came in to dig the streets. It is by a lake, and when the 'lake effect snow' comes, it can come fast. There is another 30 inches forecast tonight. I'm not sure if it will come nearer to me.

Wow! That's a lot of snow! The weather here is allright at the moment. Mainly cloudy, sometimes some rain. It's not very warm but not very cold either. Can't complain really at this time of year :).

The weather's pretty strange where I am at the moment. Last night and this morning, it was really cold. Then in the afternoon it got pretty warm, only for me to be shivering again an hour or so later. :(

This was the view from my window this morning. I ride my bicycle to the lab I work in, it took a bit longer to get there today:

I've heard about some of the sudden high levels of snow in the US. Holding off here, just wet and cold so far. Suspect it's coming though...

Don't know if any of you guys from the US are near here, but this is a pretty impressive amount of snow! Seeing what was coming in pictures 8 and 19 would be enough to scare the living daylights out of you!

Yeah, the snow in the northern parts of the US, was on our news on TV yesterday. Brrr! Here it might be a bit cold but not that cold yet! Maximum temperature is about 9 C today, minimum around freezing temp I think (it definitely froze last night at least).
