Here in Holland we are having a very strong winter with a lot of snow and temperatures were this night -20 o!
This is very unusual over here, normally we have no or only 1-2 days snow in wintertime. A lot of Dutch people like to skate and most of us are hoping for an Elfstedentocht, when people are ice-skating on nature ice along 11 cities in the North of Holland, Friesland. This race has only taken place 15 times in the last century. You can read more about it over here.
Today we had some new visitors in our garden, this morning we saw the first pheasant, later they came together.

Oh, I hope you have the freezing to have the race. I always think of Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates when I think of winter in Holland. =)
