Severe cold coming to Holland

Hi Robert,

This article was in the online version of the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf:
http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/5665033/___Elfstedenkou_op_komst___.html?p=1,1

It says that from next week onwards the temperatures are forecast to dip so deep that another "Elfsteden Tocht" (eleven cities tour) is on the cards (http://www.elfstedentocht.nl/).

That is a rather special event in the province of Friesland where after many days and nights of severe frost the lakes, rivers and canals freeze over to allow a skating marathon of over 200km.

Piers Corbyn (of WeatherAction.com) also predicts the return of winter soon, so for once there is agreement between solar-based and standard meteorology.

In the 1940's and 50's this event was more regular, there were 6 runs in those two decades. In the 60's to the 90's only 4 events were held; the last one on 4 January 1997. (http://www.elfstedentocht.nl/nl/de_vereniging/historie)

Maybe the tide has turned and we are heading towards a period of global cooling - all the while that the carbon dioxide level keeps rising.

Best regards, 
Hans Schreuder
