Hallo! I am a little Piaggio Ape! Reporting to you live from the Sarphatipark in Amsterdam. I can say; The ice isn’t thick enough yet. However, most Dutchies have been diagnosed with ijskoorts (ice fever 🧊 ). But don’t worry, it is not something deadly, it can only lead to disappointment and wet feet. Ice fever is something that occurs when there are multiple nights below zero in a row, with more expected. To keep warm, the Dutch get this fever. In hope that they can ice skate on the canals, ponds, lakes. Heck, some people even spray their grassy fields. Or athletics track. All for natuurijs (nature ice) and koek & zopie (cake & hot liquids)!
