We were at a holiday party in Den Haag. We had no problems with the trains but we did have to avoid a fresh coating of snowfall and snowball crossfire on our way home.

This morning, I went out for a walk in the beautiful snow.
My first steps outside revealed that a small and cute animal must have tried to visit us.
My next steps outside were toward the car that was facing our apartment so that I could brush snow off of it.
No, I'm not a snow samaritan.
When I looked out the window this morning I saw this (below), and naturally, I entered the word into google translate... which in hindsight probably wasn't necessary.
But now I know for sure... and I don't need to see it every time I look out the window.

The city was very quiet at 10 am.
A few spandexy cyclist guys were out having fun:
A huge flock of loud birds flew over the reopened Burcht.

|Birds flying in loose formation over the burcht.|
And I saw my first dutch snowman of the season!
