Hello Robert,

I have some news for the "In other parts of the world" section of your blog.

On Thursday there will be a national outdoor-skating championship in the Netherlands, the first since Dec. 1996.

It has been freezing since Christmas and now the ice on lakes and canals is thick enough for official races.

It is still the first week of January. February is traditionally the coldest month in our low country, because the North Sea takes months to cool down to winter-temperatures.

Ice is troubling ships in the Rotterdam Harbour also first time since 1997.
