Buienradar — Your best friend in The Netherlands (source: Buienradar App)

As a Brazilian living in the Netherlands, I was a little acetic about the rain in the Netherlands. I imagined: “it can’t rain this much, people overreact on this”. But no, it’s true. It rains a lot. It’s not thunderstorms, but it can really be annoying if you are surprised every day in a week.
