Belgium - My kind of a country for a total freeze

The previous week Belgium had +15 C and many were taking out their summer clothes, getting ready for a nice beer at the terrace bars. Few days later the shit - or snow - hit the fan and served 5-15 cm of snow. For a country that collapses from 2 cm this is a disaster as they are not equipped nore skilled to handle it.


Sorry guys, the pic is not from today...

Some articles talked about 700 km of traffic jams, others about 1600 km and total freeze on the roads. Thinking of that, it is no surprise that also our kids' old school was closed. Damn, it was closed due to 2cm of snow at our first winter in Belgium - that gave us a nice laugh.

Well, we are today somewhere at # 125 of snowdays in a row. We got few some fresh snow last week also, just a bit though... Well, we are both equipped and skilled to manage it. It's fun to drive the car in the winter and with good snow on the roads: that gives me a chance to drive instead of just steering!

Another freeze in Belgium happens when ever they have a chance to go on strike - a bit like the French. Yes, of course there is often a good reason for the strike but still. Now one of the strikes has caused me a little bit of dislike as the new car that I was supposed to get beginning of March was first expected "sometime in April" and now the system shows as a production day 26th of April and as a delivery day June 1st. Let's see what happens...
I love winter!
Not Belgium.
Except the beer. And food. And some of the... people, shopping, restaurants, touristic opportunities, and...

PS I'll try to tell you soon about a winter day today.
