It snows again in Zwolle. That is 18 days of a continuous snow cover, probably as much as the past 3 winters together. Not to mention we had 7 days in december as well, which brings the total to 25 days of snow cover.

@nexis.

No straight horizons but I guess it's pretty good for the kind of camera you have? What kind of camera do you have?

I really like them. Though, they'd be much better if you watched the horizon a little better .

I've seen toll plazas with rumble stripes to wake up drivers and slow them down. That's pretty much all they can do to prevent such incidents, isn't it? (besides free-flow electronic tolling)

I didn't say it was fool-proof, but what else can you do?

Luckily no one else was hurt.

Right Now its

4C / 40F with a low of 31 which is above average

Average is in the 30s F

By Wednesday Jan 27 it should be 3C / 39 , with a low of 27

January weather takes turns Extreme Cold & Mild Cold , but February is usually all Cold , with a few mild cold days. In March it turns into an Atmospheric Roller Coaster, Cold , Mild Cold , Cold , Warm , and sometimes hot.

Someone turned the heat up here to, but Stockholm is still experiencing some snowfall and 2-3C below freezing. A normal winter compared to the -20C we had just over a week ago.
