Everybody was waiting for the Elfstedentocht.

The Elfstedentocht : "Eleven Cities Tour", the world's largest and longest speed skating competition and leisure skating tour, is held irregularly in the province of Friesland, Netherlands. The tour, almost 200 km in length, is conducted on frozen canals, rivers and lakes between the eleven Frisian cities:
The tour is not held every year, mostly because not every Dutch winter permits skating on natural ice. The last editions were in 1985, 1986 and 1997. Adding to that, the tour currently features about 16,000 amateur skaters taking part, putting high requirements on the quality of the ice. There is a stated regulatory requirement for the race to take place that the ice must be (and remain at) a minimum thickness of 15 centimetres along the entirety of the course.This year a lot of people thought the tour should be held on 11 or 12 februari 2012. But is was cancelled because of the ice conditions.

I'm surprised it gets cold enough there to actually stand on a canal!

Fascinating pictures to say the least.
