After the snow comes the floods!

We were woken up at one am this morning by a flood alert! Due to the snow yesterday which quickly thawed, all the water from the surrounding hills gushed down into the valley and the river that runs alongside our apartments building.

Everyone had to move their cars out of the car parking area in case the river overflowed. Luckily it didn’t reach as far the car park.

The river must have gone up by approx 4 metres 😬 and the gentle brook which runs alongside the side of the apartment building  is now a pond.


Thankfully it has dropped down now and should continue to do so. We can do without that happening again in the night.

  1. What awful weather you keep having. Glad the apartment block didn’t flood. Enjoy the rest of the week Elaine and be good (with your eating, that is!)

    • Luckily the apartments were built with a space beneath them in the event of flooding. I am trying to be good with my eating, I have my hospital appointment next Monday for my fibroscan 🙂

  2. The photos are a bit scary! But those lovely vines on the trees might need painting? I love trees and leaves, hint hint.
