This is the detailed weather situation at my home, which is in a small city (27.000 inhabitants) called Krimpen a/d Yssel which lies about 12 kms east of Rotterdam. With an harbour where 33.000 ships enter per year Rotterdam is by far the biggest port in the world. With my Garmin eMap GPS I found the rather exact coordinates of my home to be: 51° 54' 51" North and 04° 35' 59,4" East.
