A15 eastbound traffic will be switched to a new carriageway in a few weeks.

There was an article in the (London) Daily Telegraph yesterday about "Britain sweltering" as temperatures should reach 30 there. I wonder if they'll close Heathrow, like they do when there's a snow flurry [JOKING]

Today's forecast high for Philadelphia: 91 or 92 Fahrenheit (depending where you look), about 33 C. A bit cooler - 26 to 28 C - for the next few days. 30 is about normal for July and August here.

The fuss about the high temperatures is because the whole summer so far was rather disappointing and cool, with many days below 20 C. Normally 30+ temperatures are recorded virtually every summer for a couple of days at least.

We are going to hit 37c this Sunday. It's over 30c now, and we never went below 18 this summer. Not when I was here anyway.

don't know if somebody posted this already but they started to put 120km/h speed limit signs at the highway. I find it a strange sight at the A58 al those 120 signs. I couldn't make a picture of it during driving.

130 km/h will be the default limit starting September 1, 2012. Rijkswaterstaat started posting 120 km/h signs along stretches that will not yet be upgraded to 130 km/h.

... Or never will. In which case 120 limits will always be signposted along with the 100 ones I assume..?

Well, never say never, but 120 km/h will be signposted for the time being. It's not that different from Germany, where you can also find 120 and 130 km/h.

You can't have any fun on the beach any more... I will never be able to drive on the beach in Holland ( legally anyhow).

You can swim, walk, sunbathe, have Sex, bbq, play beach ball, and get drunk on the beach. I'll use roads if I want to drive, I don't need a beach for that.

Question: are you a Wilders voter?

That's why I asked if he is a Wilders voter. They normally have that same tunnel visioned look on things.

And on the same overhead signs cities signposted in three different countries.
When coming from Aachen, heading towards the A76 in the Netherlands, Antwerpen is signposted only (in Germany signs for Antwerpen leads via Heerlen, Brussels leads via Liege). But even in the Netherlands, Antwerpen only is signposted until you get to Belgium, where you pick up signs for Brussels as well again. But now, on this picture at least they have displayed the signs for Brussel on the A76 slips...

Strange, the E314 (A76 in Netherlands) leads directly onto the E40 towards Brussel.

I drove on the A50 today where there is shoulder running during rush hour (between Apeldoorn and Arnhem). They have installed the new 120 km/h signs there as well, but with a rather cryptic subtext for the non-Dutch speaking motorists: 'bij gesloten spitsstrook'. Along with the 100 km/h signs that are active during shoulder running it looked at little confusing to me. Unfortunately I was not able to make a photo.
