At least your dog is of the "Waterdog" variety:)
dang....a little wet eh? hope you get a break....thats some pretty high water...
I remember the last time your valley got flooded and made walking a little challenging. Is Millie enjoying the puddles at least?
It's hard to reconcile my memory of your quiet river with these photos of water-overload! Do you need me to send my wellies?
Wow, I'd say you've definitely had enough. The countryside looks wonderful though.FlowerLady
Hope you are getting some of the dry weather we are having. We are pretty sodden here -- but nothing like what you're experiencing.
That's more water than anyone should have to deal with. Too bad that it's so saturated and it's just sitting there being a nuisance. Iy does happen here too in our river valley. Luckily, we always keep out feet dry.
We had a year like that in 2011, although probably not as bad as what we are hearing about I what is happening in GB. Hope 2013 is better for you.
Shee-ite. That's all.XOWWW
I would love some rain. Although its not as dry as last year, we are still in drought conditions.
My goodness, so much water. Hope things dry out soon.
Some of our local rivers had flood warnings after heavy rains, but I don't think any jumped their channels. - Margy
So wish we could help you out - we desperately need moisture in Northern Wisconsin - going into winter with little snow cover is going to be very serious...a great loss of perennials because of deep frost and a very real danger of underground pipes, holding tanks, etc. freezing up. Then come Spring, the fire danger escalates in our woods and dry fields. What an unbalanced weather pattern this world is in.
I just wish some of that water could be spread around a little. This must be so frustrating to you. I can only imagine how dreary all that water must be. I would be saying the same thing. "Enough already" fits perfectly here. We need some rain or snow here. We are so dry.
Thigh length wellies required!
It seems so unfairly distributed, doesn't it!
Hi Friko - just glad it's not your house .. some areas have been really terribly hit with the weather .. it's the land and agriculture I worry about .. and the disaster for families flooded, not once, twice, but thrice - someone dealt some really difficult cards this year.Lots of mud for you and Millie ... Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud - Flanders and Swann knew what they were writing and singing about ... thinking of you - cheers Hilary
Terrifying. Glad you seem to be on the top of a hill but not so good for those below.
Friko, we can see on out TV news how bad the flooding is in Britain. How are you affected? Are you badly flooded? - Dave
ja dat ziet er niet goed uit,hopelijk is het alleen de overstroming(al erg genoeg natuurlijk) en geen dieren of mensen die hierbij nadeel of erger moeten ontberen.
How many days has it been? I hear 40 is the magic number. From what I have been told, anything less than that will pass. However, a word of advice... if it gets close to 40 days, look around for someone building a big boat.From the look of things, the creek is well within its natural floodplain. And, obviously, you had the good sense not to build there. Logic which seems to elude a great many.
I live in an arid place now, but a few years ago, I lived where I often uttered similar words. The moisture is so necessary to life, but becomes wearisome, for sure. I moved because I missed the sunshine. I am easily depressed with endless days of clouds and gloom. Hang on tight.
Jeepers, Friko, that's definitely too much water! I know that you will be careful when out for walks ... big trees with loosened roots and all that.Meanwhile, let me also thank you for the prior lady gardener's report of seasonal transition. I can report that the neighbors down my street with the rose garden in front of their brownstone have indeed cut back their luxuriant roses. Just in time, because it's gotten quite cold here, and we had snow, rain and slush yesterday. Oh, and some fierce wind, too.Full moon tonight.xo
Oh,, my but that looks dreadful. As a few others have intoned in their comments, we could use a bit of the moisture here in Illinois, but, that wishing does you no good now, does it?
Definitely too much of a good thing ! At this rate , standard emergency supplies in every home will include sandbags and an inflatable dinghy as well as the usual candles , a torch and bottled water .
It LOOKS like the water is well contained... it's terrible when a river breaks its banks. I have following the news of rain and still more rain in UK and feel for those poor people who are not only flooded out but are very cold. Christine
That looks awful.They have forecast some heavy flooding here as well... Out on the plain it can get very nasty.I hope it dries up soon for you...
Drat.. that's a shame. And here, we've not had enough of it. I hope you dry out soon.
...and there are those who question that global warming exists!
I know...just send the rain here...we need itHugsSueAnn
that is an overabundance of rain! the surrounding land is certainly lush, though.
We`ve had enough rain too, for this year. Soon it`ll be snow...
A river runs through it, indeed. ~Mary
Hallo Friko,ich hoffe, Du wohnst weit genug von dem Fluß entfernt. Das ist schon schlimm, welche Urgewalten die Natur mit einem Mal entwickeln kann. Wir wohnen ja nicht allzu weit vom Rhein entfernt. Wo wir bis 2008 gewohnt hatten, hatten wir bei hohen Rheinhochwassern Grundwasser im Keller. Ich hoffe, dass ihr von solchen Dimensionen verschont bleibt.Gruß Dieter
Hier sind es meist die Strassen und Unterführungen, zuweilen auch Gullies die voll und überlaufen. Einen guten Freitag dir.
Now that's a lot of water. We get flooding up here along the river every year in the spring. Not fun! I'm lucky enough to live a very safe distance from the river. I hope the water subsides soon, Friko.
well - i hope your house is not affected. looks pretty bad, so hope you are safe
It does seem endless, doesn't it?
Dear Friko, we here in Missouri have been in a drought for nearly two years. Oh, to have some of that water. And it sounds as if you would gladly let us have it if only that were possible. Peace.
Comments are good, I like to know what you think of my posts. I know you'll keep it civil.
