Since we can't do anything about it!

It's back to snow now! It was raining! I thought the snow was done!

This news is 3 days old, the roads are now cleaner and the snowing is stopping. But as you can see on the video, it was really a crappy couple of days.



Hungary snow strands 10,000 motorway drivers

Tanks have been deployed to reach snowbound motorists in Hungary as cold weather causes transport chaos across central Europe.

T-72 battle tanks trundled along icy roads, while thousands of people waited in cars on the M1 motorway from Budapest to Vienna.

Many had been stuck on the road since Thursday evening.

Lilien: Holy Crapola! Winter is hanging on. I though the stinkin' groundhog predicted an early spring. Liar! :twisted:

You are all going to hate me, now. But remember, YOU brought up this topic. Not me.
It's a beautiful sunny 85 degrees (that's 29.4 in Celsius). There is little wind and the sky is blue, blue, blue. A top-ten day!

Sorry, y'all!

Yeah, we'll listen to you whining when it's hot and humid come summer (and I'll be blaming you for sending that heat and humidity up here!).

It does sound lovely though. Sigh.

I hate the humidity, too and some days I can't figure out why I moved to Florida. I guess I have to remember THIS DAY! right?

It has been raining in Germany for weeks and now a lot of towns have been flooded, especially in East- and South Germany. Here in Ulm we have been walking along our river, the Danube on Saturday. The walkway next to it is completely under water. Unbelivable

But we here are lucky, some towns are completely flooded.

This is Passau.



This is Grimma in Saxony


This is on the Autobahn A8 which goes also through our town.


Our neighbour country, Austria has also troubles with the water.

Unbelievable, I hope everyone survives this without losing too much. My heart goes out everyone.

Budapest and Wien and Prague are also hit strongly.

Hungary:









Czech Republic:




Germany:






Austria:



The situation is currently crazy in this part of Europe. There will be a lot of damage and there is already some casualties. It is all very sad. The water in Ulm is going down and we even had Sun today, to be honest we had quite a nice day. We weren't hit so strongly given that Danube is quite small in our town, but just one hour from us the towns are completely under water.

Wow. That's incredible! (Though some of the photos are pretty funny.) I just checked a BBC report and it said some section had the worst flooding in 400 years. shook

How terrible. Those homes will take years to repair and get rid of the stench. YIKES! I feel so bad for them, my damaged roof and chimney seem pretty minor now. shook
