What to say? Beautiful as always. I used to know someone from Raalte. He was a big fan of Ljubljana.

Used to? He's still a member here (though his last activity was quite a while ago), right?

Anyway, spring has really started now, as can be seen on the pics, though some rain is expected for tomorrow and the rest of next week. I just hope that the sun will return soon afterwards

Yeah, a very active member; but maybe he's logged out.

We should have snow here today, but all we've had is sun; great.

Pictures where taken somewhere in Noord-Brabant (Dutch province) by wolkenbestormer. I don't know the exact highway.

A29 near Dinteloord I assume. Not sure though, it's my least visited area of NL.

1: indeed the A29 at Dinteloord, here is the end of the A29.



I am not sure about no. 2 as well.

It's the A29, most likely, since all pics by Wolkenbestormer were taken in the same area.

Most crashbarriers in NL are rusted, simply because they have been in service for 30 - 40 years often, in a humid climate with a lot of sea-salt in the air.

how does the salt get into the air?

(afaik during the vaporization the water and salt separate and only the water goes into the air...)

It's quite significant actually, mostly as "feinstaub" (don't know the exact English word, "particle matter" I guess).

probably the seawaves spray billions of droplets into the air, and that droplets contain salt...

Along the coast you really notice the salt air, but more inland you don't. I wonder if there is a difference in how rusty crash barriers are between the west and the east side of the country

In air quality calculations of PM10, a correction can be made to subtract sea-salt from the PM10 values. You should know the maximum allowed value is 40 microgrammes per cubic meter, and the correction ranges from 3 g along the German border to 8 g along the coast, so it's quite significant. (3 - 8 out of 40 g).

How is the Westerscheldetunnel doing? Still making huge losses?
