The Holland Heatwave no one saw coming anymore

This past summer we constantly entertained you with all kinds of pics and memes of this thing alledgedly called the ‘Dutch summer’. And you all liked the hell out of it while sitting inside with rain pouring outside.

Standard weather report:

No it’s not gonna stop #raining soon. #dutchsummer #mondaymorning

Holland Heatwave coming up

And just when everybody was getting back to their office-cubicles this weird climate of ours, in an ultimate troll-action, decided to throw us a proper heatwave. Temperatures last week were already high, but today is the start of a serie of days where the thermostat goes higher than that 30 degrees celsius bar (in regular American; that’s Californianhot – not Texas hot).

Ah damn, just while we all have to work! 🙁 Well, I guess we can plan something nice for the weekend then?

Damn you cruel Dutch weathergods! (source:

In case you’re able to enjoy the good weather to a certain degree, here’s how DutchReview can help out:

– BBQing like a Dutchie

– Hitting the Amsterdam beaches

– Talking Dutch during a heatwave

And if you think it’s hot here then think about the poor people ‘down under’.
