    If you look closely, you can see a hooker trapped under the ice

    wow, ice can freeze hard enough to hold the weight of several people? Please, tell me more of this wizardry.

    The Dutch love their frozen canals, but are meticulous about safe ice thickness. When it is thick enough every few years the canal skate races are worth watching.

    I have an urge to `shop a speech bubble on the server saying "Today`s speciality is iced tea".

    scary. But I spose they know what they`re doing

    Freezing :)

    I didn`t know it got that cold in the Netherlands. You wouldn`t want to be doing that unless the river has frozen a hell of a lot. Couple of feet, maybe.

    @Angilion,

    It can get as low as -25 celcius over here. It`s rare but it happens every now and then.

    Erk. We`ve had -9C here this year, which is the coldest I`ve ever known. It`s the first time I`ve felt that there`s some degree of actual danger in the temperature, walking outdoors in the middle of the night.

    Less severe winters was one of the things Julius Caeser noted about Britain and one of the reasons why the Romans invaded. It was shock to them when they went further north into Britain and found that winters there are much worse than the southern areas that were the only parts the Romans knew about before the invasion.

    Been there, got high in a bar. The Bull Dog in The Hague, but regretfully, did not buy a hooker.

    Step 1) Bring a boombox
    Step 2) Bring a tape with the sound of ice cracking recorded
    Step 3) Find a cure for cancer
