You have a true winter over there. In Holland it snows now and then but it melts in the daytime. +4C is normal at the moment. How are your summers? Is it hot. We got a lot of rain this summer.

Jan, we usually get only a few snowfalls but sometimes the ground freezes for a few days and the snow will last a long time and the local folks sometimes say that the snow is waiting for the next snowfall. Usually, though, the snow melts pretty soon after it falls. It must be just a bit colder here than in your 'neck of the woods'. Our summers are not unbearable. It is usually about 10 degrees (F) in Atlanta, Georgia than it is here and we are not very far. The cool mountains are cooler than west and east too. There are a lot of plants that grow here in the mountains that were brought down in the ice age from Canada and sometimes pictures from Canada look a lot like my mountains, or as in The Great Smoky Mountains. It is a mild climate. This past summer, well actually for the passed two years, we have been in a drought and have not gotten nearly the normal amount of rain. Perhaps the winds are blowing our rain and splashing it over your Holland.
