Flooding in Germany

Hochwasser June 2013 – some areas in Germany are experiencing the worst flooding ever. Many homes had to get evacuated, farmers fear for their livelihood, and rebuilding will be a heavy toll on the country.

Just yesterday, we had a sunny day in between. After weeks and weeks of rain, I had the chance to air out the bedding. At the same time, I let our daughter’s bears enjoy a bit of the sunshine too.

This only lasted for a day. We are back to heavy rains, a monstrous thunder storm had just rolled through Hesse (otherwise, unaffected by the flooding) and in some places in Germany, water levels are still rising.  One dam just burst near Madgeburg where the Sahle river and Elbe river meet.

Rain, rain, everywhere.
