Atentie: ninge! / Beware: snow!

06 Dec

Prezicerea vremii pare sa devina o stiinta exacta in Olanda.

In seara asta am urmarit cu ochi mari cel mai avansat buletin meteo de pana acum.

Asa am aflat cum ca azi la orele 22.00 trecute fix (deci pe acum) zapada va patrunde in teritoriul olandez si ca, in cateva etape, se va inteti tot mai mult, culminand in intensitate la ora 04.00. Dupa care va continua sa ninga si maine, ceea ce va duce negresit la o situatie dezastruoasa pentru traficul zilei de maine, dar, macar atat noroc avem, vinerea e oricum ziua cea mai putin aglomerata d.p.d.v. al traficului de dimineata.

Ba am primit chiar si un e-mail de la caile ferate olandeze care deja ma anunta ca maine trenurile vor circula dupa un orar special adaptat la zapada si inghet, cu un numar injumatatit de trenuri, deci mai aglomerate si cu posibilitatea de a trebui sa schimbi trenul de mai multe ori si deci sa petreci mai mult timp pe drum.

Mai e putin pana sa inceapa distractia, eu stau si ma intreb: are rost sa incercam sa ajungem la serviciu maine? Totusi, se asteapta cel putin 10 cm de zapada!!!


The weather forecast seems to become an exact science in the Netherlands.

This evening I have watched with big eyes the most advanced weather forecast ever.

I learned that today at 22.00 hours (so about now) the snow will enter the Dutch territory and that, in a few stages, it will intensify, climaxing at 04.00 hours. Afterwards, it will keep on snowing tomorrow, which will certainly lead to a disaster in traffic, but, at least we are lucky that Fridays are the most quite days traffic wise.

I have even received an e-mail from the Dutch railways letting me know already that tomorrow’s trains will ride as per timetables adapted to the snow and frost, the amount of trains being half of the regular one, so they will be crowded and you might have to change trains more often and thus spend more time on the way.

The fun is about to begin and I can’t help wondering if we should even try to get to work tomorrow? After all, at least 10 cm of snow are expected!!!
