King winter arrived, and left the next day

Here in The Netherlands it has been very cold in the past few days, snow and temperatures below zero (centigrade) made sure our country was changed into a winterwonderland.

I had planned to go out for a walk on Sunday to make beautiful photographs so you could see the snow. But, unfortunately, on Sunday it was raining and all the snow disappeared. Shame.

Just a few leftovers of the snow can be seen, the rest has vanished.
And the day after all that rain, this was the only bit of snow left. Literally, the only bit. There was no snow to be seen anywhere, but for this little heap. Very strange.
