Holland is under influence of storm Ciara today. That means it is damn windy and later on today several warnings will come up for people to not go into the streets. To me....an easy answer.. If warnings are coming out, just stay inside. That is what I have learned from being in the Caribbean. Don't try to outfool the weather.
Cancellations everywhere! Flights and events are cancelled. Zoos are closed, and people are warned to just stay inside. Not a super bad advice if you ask me. Us Dutchies are notorious for being stubborn and are always thinking that we can outsmart the weather, but I am a big fan of just letting go when mother nature decides to play ball.
NK Tegen de wind in fietsen
Others are doing something different on a day like this. In Zeeland (a providence in Holland) there is a contest today of people trying to bike against the wind as fast as they can on the dykes. If you ask me a little bit stupid (well on the other hand, there is not much in Zeeland apart from gras and water, so not a lot of chance to get hit by something) because getting there might actually be a bit dangerous, but on the other hand it is a really sweet outdoor activity while this storm is passing.
