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 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ and the gentle brook which runs alongside the side of the apartment building ย 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.
