Leiden in the Spring

Today was clearly the unofficial start of the spring season here in Leiden. Bar owners started setting up their outdoor seating and I even saw some kids taking a boat out on the canal. It was all due to the bright sun and warm (but not too warm) air.
Meanwhile, I got an email from BU informing me of a special number I could call to find out about snow cancellations and delays. It seems they’re having a bit of a storm back home.
Here’s the scene today outside a local bar in late afternoon:
