I know it's actually only Autumn at the moment, and we've barely had any frost yet, let alone a single flake of snow, but preparations for the snow and ice in winter have begun.
The video shows what has been happening in Emmen. They've been trying all the equipment out to make sure there are no unpleasant surprises when winter arrives.
As a reminder of what winter is like, and how well these preparations work, take a look at the posts from last winter.
Emmen is the largest city in Drenthe. It's got a larger population than Assen, the capital of the province, where we live.
Oh, and we've got studded tyres if you want them...
