Storm

Another big storm is passing over the country today. Absolute chaos at the moment.

Went to Utrecht by train to go to the Webwinkel Vakdagen, a trade fair for e-commerce websites. We decided however to leave around lunchtime, to be home ahead of the storm. It started well enough, but halfway home things started falling apart. A train, a lightrail and a very long busride got us home after a little over three and a half hours. It usually takes a little more than half an hour to get to Leiden from Utrecht. But we turned out to be the lucky ones, as I later found out loads of people were stranded and had to sleep over at the trainstation.
