Drijfsijs

For the past week, this is what the weather looked like… (and although these photos look black & white, they aren’t – it really was that grey!). It rained a lot, and the rain was heavy – the kind of weather where I’d rather sit inside with a cup of tea than to even *think* of going outside.

I love visiting the lake in all seasons, here are some photos taken in winter, in autumn and in summer. When I first started my job, I imagined lunch breaks spent at the lake 🙂 But I forgot that as a meteorologist on duty you can’t really leave the building during your lunch break 😀…
