Differences

netherlands-locationAs you know this country I live in is not that big. Comparatively, the area occupied by the Netherlands is slightly less than twice the size of the state of New Jersey, but it has almost 17 million inhabitants, a few million more than the whole state of New York!

Weather wise we have an exceptional day today, in the coastal areas the temps will go up to 21° C / 70° F, while on the border with Germany, just 139 km / 86 miles to the east they’re expecting temps up to 35° C / 95° F. All this of course after the threatening thunderstorms have gone.

  1. I feel like I haven’t chatted with you in forever. Sounds like you’re having a good day. Here on Long Island in New York, I have yet to water the grass or plants or to put the air conditioners in the windows. This is very unusual. Also, one of the side effects of Hurricane Sandy was to clog the drainage systems with sand and debris so now whenever it rains, which has been every 2-3 days since March, the water has no where to go and the street easily flood. Monday was our first real beach day and it only lasted until 4 when a storm ran through.

  2. The first time I visited Amsterdam (I think it was summer 1974), the temps were an unusually high mid 30s. Whew! Amazing the variations you’re experiencing right now. Still a spectacular country.
