Favorite thing: Map of the Netherlands...
Bottom left or <font color = blue><b>South West</b></font color = blue> where the province is colored <font color = blue><b>yellowish</b></font color = blue> that is where I live, in that town called <font color = blue><b>Middelburg</b></font color = blue>. We live here below sea level, which doesn't <font color = blue><b>frighten </b></font color = blue>us because we now that our<font color = blue><b> dunes and dykes</b></font color = blue> are high and strong enough to withstand heavy weather but.... you never know.... the last <font color = blue><b>major inundation </b></font color = blue>was in<font color = blue><b> 1953</b></font color = blue> in which <font color = blue><b>thousands</b></font color = blue> of people <font color = blue><b>drowned</b></font color = blue> during those wet, icy, cold <font color = blue><b>February</b></font color = blue> days. That was real panic......
So we must always be watchful and observant.
Dangerous is a <font color = blue><b>NW storm </b></font color = blue>in combination with <font color = blue><b>spring-tide</b></font color = blue>. The <font color = blue><b>wild waters </b></font color = blue>will then be forced into the <font color = blue><b>CHANNEL</b></font color = blue> and <font color = blue><b>towards </b></font color = blue>our coastline, ready to<font color = blue><b> gnaw away </b></font color = blue>the pieces of land we so <font color = blue><b>laboriously </b></font color = blue>claimed and will <font color = blue><b>reclaim</b></font color = blue>, because that is all we have:<font color = blue><b> a stretch of land reclaimed from the sea</b></font color = blue>.
Don't let this story prevent you from visiting me!!!
It really is <font color = blue><b>safe</b></font color = blue>!
