I just love this kind of weather at the North Sea. Blowing winds, a steady surf and any minute it’s going to rain. Normally this is the typicall weather up here in the north during spring and fall. But not this year. Spring time was unusually warm and dry with a blue sky ( more like summer). Fall was about the same, but way too dry. During November the average precipitation is about 67 liters per square meter. This year it was just 3 liters!
A friend of mine send me some photos of the river Rhine two weeks ago. Well, there seems to be no doubt about a climate change.
