Ok im in the car now on the A12 highway at exit nieuwerbrug. Some huge thunderstorm took down trees as thick as a mans head. Its a total chaos and 500m in front of me the firemen seem to be sawing people out of cars being smashed by trees. No clue how long this will take but im happy my car only got hit by small branches.

Ok im home again. After being stuck about 90 minutes the road was cleared again and I could continue. Looking back I have been pretty lucky and with me many people there !
It rained so much you couldnt see anything. I heard things banging against my car .. when the rain was gone everything was changed, parts of trees (upto a men head thick) were everywhere, trough car windshields even.
That was a pretty scary moment, was happy I had a sturdy car there and no BIG parts of trees hit me.
One nice thing is that after the storm many guys got out of their cars afterwards and started trowing trees over the siderails. Excelent teamwork between total strangers. Some part of the trees were so big it took several men to lift it !
Some phone photos/videos below to give you and idea .. but im happy to be home again ! Gonna check my car tomorrow in daylight to see if/how many scratches and dents I got
