The Sun hasn't risen over its horizon for more than two months yet at a balmy -6C +21F the North Pole was yesterday warmer than parts of the South of France, Italy, Greece Turkey and Syria.

The North Pole was actually yesterday 34C or 93F warmer than the average temperature for the time of the year and it's been like that for most of the winter which is incredible when you realize parts of Greenland and Russia have had regular temperatures as low as -57C or -71F.

Today most of Europe is witnessing sub-zero temperatures as the big freeze continues.


Here in Holland we witnessed a winter wonderland after a reasonably mild winter so far and a mild spring.


As the whole of Europe slips into below freezing temperatures, Holland's water ways begin to freeze over,

The cold snap is expected to warm up a little later in the day here in North Holland.

Even parts of Spain is a winter wonderland!
