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 I was offered a lift to The Hague, but now it's been withdrawn, and I don't know how or if I'll get home.

*clings* It's bad even here (storm, torrents of rain, thunder and lightning, eek!) and we just got a normal storm warning - can't even imagine what it must be like in the west right now! I've heard two people have already died in the Netherlands.

Stay safe!

It's a force 11 gale here at the moment, winds up to 135 km per hour. I didn't know that when I decided that come hell or high water, I was going home.

I made it home safely, though -- took me nearly 4 hours, but I'm here now. ;-)

Good to know you're safe now! :)
