On Friday we had the first "real" snow since we've been here. The impending doom was all over the news and the alert was set at code orange (which I found ironic). It was estimated that we were going to get 5 cm (2 inches) in The Hague. Other parts of the country could get up to 4 inches.
At one point during the day they had 800km (500 miles) of traffic jams. It took myself and a co-worker 1 1/2 hours to travel our 5 miles home.
