BELGIAN SNOWSTORM

Long before it really started to snow, people started to be in panic ! And it's true, the media really made a big catastrophe out of the few snowflakes we finally got.



We reached about 3 cm in the Brussels' area and it snowed about 24 h !  Today's view out of my window to the left.


The Belgians have a lot of humor,  I found this yesterday on Facebook ! It was shared I don't know how many times.

In fact nobody was hurt, only the traffic was a mess and the public transport which in normal times is rather bad, was even worse during this dramatic time !

The T shirt certainly made me smile.

Yes, that t-shirt got a grin out of me too.

They were selling t-shirts with "I survived the Atlanta snowstorm" that looked similar to those. You get them like we do...

The media tend to blow the weather conditions out of proportion here too.

I was in London in 2009 (?) when they had about 5cm of snow in one evening. What a mess! I was living close to Ottawa at the time. There, even 30cm of snow in a day didn't cause that much of a fuss.
Love the shirt! Haha!

3cm of snow is nothing. The tee shirt is funny.

Great t-shirt. We had less than 1cm of snow here earlier this week. Didn't even notice it.

The media always blow everything out of proportion. It's so silly. Last week we were told we would have hailstorms and thunderstorms all week and it would feel like -1. Instead the temperature was fairly normal for this time of year with some rain, but nothing catastrophic.
