You brighten my day..

Central Europe is reeling under floods. What began to finally look like summer turned into a continuos stream of heavy down pour which in turn has now resulted in swollen rivers.
While the situation is not bad in our town, many people in the cities of Passau in Germany, Prague in the Czech Republic, and neighbouring countries of Austria and Switzerland have not been so lucky.

Keeping our fingers crossed and hoping and praying that the waters recede as soon as possible.


  1. Striking and sad photos of the flood waters which I hope retreat soon.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of this. We had terrible flooding here in Australia this year AND last year, and it was devastating and scary. Hoping for receding waters very soon.

  3. Hope these floods cause as little destruction as possible.....interesting and terrifying at the same time.

  4. It's so terrible. In some parts of Holland, near the river Ren people has also difficult situation.
    We are waiting for really hot summer!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of water! The mid-west has had quite a bit of flooding this year too. Whereas in California where I live we've had hardly any rain! Your duck picture at the end was such a great summation! Hope things dry out there soon.

  6. The flooding has been devastating this year...hard to believe when you see normally dry places underwater. Hope you stay dry, May!

  7. Das Hochwasser ist für so viele Menschen eine Tragödie. Wir erwarten in den nächsten Tagen den Höhepunkt. Die Elbe hat sich schon sehr ausgebreitet und steigt immer noch....
    Liebe Grüße, Karin

  8. Hope all residents keep safe - especially our friends in Sackenbach.

I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
