Stranded!

I can't get home.

A southwester has hit the coastal provinces, and all traffic has ground to a halt. All trains have been stopped, all stations closed by order of the police; and car owners been strongly advised to avoid the motorways for the next few hours.

The storm outside's horrendous. A colleague has just found out that all the windows in his house have caved in. I was offered a lift to The Hague, but now it's been withdrawn, and I don't know how or if I'll get home.
