No flying until Thursday at least. We've got a very strong south west gale with code red and some places even code purple! Purple has never been called out since the wind alarm codes were established, after the big storm that flooded half of the Netherlands in '53. I realise all too well I'm living right behind a dike and 22 meters below sea level. Well, millions of Dutch are in the same boat. Let's hope our extreme investments in water management technologies over the past decades pay off.
