Beautiful pictures even if it is of a bad event. Stay safe and dry!

Veronika

Oh my goodness, I didn't realize that Germany was going through this right now (must start reading news again!). Keep safe while taking photos :)

Jacqueline

Dearest sweet TJ, oh no!! I was watching this news over at German TV with my mister. I only found out how bad the flooding is at Germany. My mister's area, hamburg is not affected but i do hope you stay safe and dry!! Sending you lots of love to you and yours!

TJ

Never fear my arty peeps. There's really not a lot of danger and I've got serious respect for the current in that water. It's more worrying for the kids who don't really understand it's not the "normal" river right now... thanks for the comments!!

Hi TJ,

quite fascinating, isn`t it ? :)

But we are used to live with those flood waters.

And that, I think, is the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of nature. Not in any mean or military sense; we just learned where to put our walls and the human ingenuity would simply prevail.


We have all the momentum; we are walking the edge of a high and beautiful wave :) (Okay that may have been a little to much :D)

But as long as you live here, from now on, you can go up on a hill in W├╝rzburg and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water marks - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back to normality.

Cheers,

Phil.

Those photos are amazing. It seems the whole world is having crazy weather right now. Here in Florida, we're in the middle of a drought, but nothing dramatic. Good luck.

Yes, the waters were rising here in the Netherlands as well. The little ferry could not sail to Tiel.
The water has risen up untill a few meters under the 'winter dyke', and some houses near the river are flooded. But the people there know this and have always a little boat to go ashore!

I am glad though to keep my feet dry! :-)
