Winter arrives in Holland


The Netherlands is getting it's first real taste of winter this week with temperatures dropping below zero and heavy snowfall today. As usual, the first snow of the winter has brought disruption to Dutch roads, railways, cyclepaths and airports.
But plenty of people are also enjoying the magical transformation of the landscape into a pristine white world. Not to mention the opportunity to build snowmen, sledge down hills and surprise the unwary with a cold, damp snowball.
