Planes have been landing over the city centre for 24 hours already (only happens in these weather conditions) and I'm hearing sirens the whole morning long. All that extra noise creates an atmosphere of emergency and it feels like the wind is shaking the whole damn house. It's kind of scary, although last night cycling back from Amstelveen after tennis it was at our backs and I hardly needed to pedal at all.

It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good.

Elk nadeel heb z'n voordeel.

Wow. I just got up and it does not seem too bad now. Seems that a tree fell on a taxi just around the corner from me but the people got put alive.

Terrible for the tourist who was killed. I got home on my bike around 0800 after a nightshift and luckily the wind was mostly at my back but stopped me in my tracks a few times.

Mr O I know what you mean about the aircraft. A KLM 747 went over me when I was on the way home this morning and it seems to be just hanging in the air above me as it fought the wind with it's engines roaring. It was awesome.

We had a similar storm in the Ruhr Area, and at least two people have died under a falling tree. No trains anylonger to the northern parts of Germany (Hamburg, Hannover, Berlin) , not sure about the trains to the Netherlands.
