*** X-MAS 2007 ***



Just in time for my favourite 7&7 - Seven and Seven - cocktail
1/3 Seagram's 7 Crown American Whiskey - 2/3 Seven-Up - Iced Cubes
- 14&14 after a while - :)


Amsterdam - 10:55 - Chicago - 13:24 - UA 909 - Boeing 767-300 - 9:29hrs scheduled - 33B
Chicago - 16:05 - Milwaukee - 16:49 - UA 6062 - CRJ-200 - 00:44hrs - 11A
Green Bay - 14:33 - Chicago - 15:34 - UA 6758 - CRJ-200 - 01:01hrs - 6D
Chicago - 17:57 - Amsterdam - 09:10 - UA 908 - Boeing 767-300 - 08:13hrs - 15B

- - - - - WISCONSIN - - NETHERLANDS - - - - - -

Comparison - Wisconsin versus The Netherlands
Wisconsin versus The Netherlands aka Holland - 4 times = 25%
UTM16 - WGS84 - projection

Always told the folks that "The Netherlands" - NL - did fit roughly 4 times into Wisconsin - WI
With one of my great GIS-DTM-tools - "Global Mapper" - I got it visible too -
Population 2007 - WI = 5.5 Million, NL = 16.5 Million
People on a square mile - WI = 99 Sq mi , NL = 1023 Sq mi


Click on the flags for more info at Wikipedia
- Will open in new window -

Another question is mostly about the weather. So I made this 6-month graph


Fahrenheit - Average temperature - Celcius
Max and Min temperatures are slightly higher or lower as in this graph
Max 50F and Min 30F will give an average of 37F in my formula i.e.
For Wisconsin we do have a "land-climate", while the milder "sea-climate" effects Holland
Mid January the plants are already growing. "Sneeuwklokjes" are mostly the first

Below on-line temperature and time ( few minutes off )




Lelystad (Flevoland) is 24 miles SW of Vollenhove

max 40-35-30-25-20-15-10-05-00-05-10-15-17-20-25-30-35-40 min Celsius...
max 104-95-86-77-68-59-50-41-32-23-14-05-00-04-13-22-31-40 min Fahrenheit
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
max 100-90-80-70-60-50-40-32-30-20-10-00-10-20-30-40 min Fahrenheit
max 38-32-27-21-16-10-04-00-01-07-12-18-23-29-34-40 min Celsius...

Another difference - Sunrise and Sunset
In winter max 1:12 hrs less daylight, while in summer max 1:18 hrs more in Vollenhove
As a result of the latitude position - see numbers and image below -
VOLLENHOVE - LAT: 52° 41' 00"N - LONG: 05° 57' 00"E
GREEN BAY - LAT: 44° 31' 00"N - LONG: 88° 01' 00"W
My rule of thumb:
"You can fit Holland in the same position as the Calgary-Edmonton area"
Wisconsin fits 42°30'N - Border Spain/France - and 47°00'N - same height as Mid-Switzerland
