Weather
Over the last couple of years, I’ve discovered that if there is the slightest chance of rain according to the weather forecast, clients are deterred from coming on the workshop though rarely we experience heavy rain for long. It usually lasts 10 minutes, then stops or it drizzles… The weather in Amsterdam changes regularly so gray sky in the morning doesn’t always mean heavy rain later. And the weather report, especially the 5-day forecast, is wrong more often than not. There is no point in waiting for a workshop that will be scheduled on a day with a best weather forecast the weather is perfect and that there is a workshop is scheduled... because that will be the day you are at work!
