Such a lot of water, such a lot of water !

This post is also available in : French German Italian

For several days now, we’ve been facing an unprecedented situation in almost all European countries : it’s cool for the season, it rains downpours, and sometimes very violent local storms accentuate the damage already caused by the rain. Germany and Belgium were particularly affected.

Floods, landslides, we’re not yet at the stage of other countries that suffer hurricanes several times a year, but it’s impressive.

Today we’re enjoying the return of the sun and the heat, but the situation of lakes and rivers remains critical: we hope that the decline will happen quickly, and hope that those most affected by these disasters will receive the help they need.

    We’ve seen the horrible and devastating floods and have been praying there would be some relief in sight and no more disasters and loss of life. So VERY sad.

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

    We tend to be avid news followers (worldwide news) and are so saddened by the weather disasters impacting Germany and other European countries. Our prayers continue to go forth for the people, the animals, the lands all so crushed by floods and more, though recovery will be long and hard we believe.
    We must all recognize our changing climate and do what we can, individually and collectively to protect and preserve and even attempt to restore or there is no future for our earth.

    We are sending purrs to you and all in your area affected by this deluge. We have some areas that are being drowned and others that are drying out over here. The weather is changing

    Fortunately we have never experienced a flood ever. But if one thing doesn’t get you, another will, and we are in a drought. Hope your area is not affected by flooding and you are all safe.

    The weird weather all over the planet worries us. We have been relatively normal, but will it last? We hope, but have no way of knowing.

    TBT once searched for “safest places” to live in the US regarding weather, and where he was turned out ta be among the top several. So we dint move.

    No place is purrfect. But hurricanes generally slip past us, deflected by the Carolinas, we’ve had a few very minor tornados but they are quick to die and small, we had an very minor earthquake once but it lasted like 5 seconds and caused no damage here.

    The rainfall is moderate (and reasonably steady each month). Decades ago, the lawn used to crack open from dryness but that hasn’t happened since. The snow is less the past decade.

    There are some safer places, but I don’t like the politics there. So we stay here.

    I hope you and your family are staying safe! The bad wheather hasn’t reached Portugal this time and I do hope it won’t reach us. But a month ago we had a tempest in one of the Portuguese islands and two people were killed. Climate change is a reality and unfortunately we are witnessing it’s consequences. Stay safe!

    That’s scary! I know in the US (especially here, where the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers meet), a lot of experts discuss that the build-up of levies and other flood control practices just makes it worse for the parts of the river that aren’t protected – and the small tributaries. In the past five years, the small tributaries have majorly flooded – turning what isn’t a flood plain into one. Water is super unforgiving. We pray that everyone over there gets the help they need.
