Venice getting worst flooding in 40 years! 5 Years, 8 Months ago  
Spending much of my morning bailing water from my entranceway...using a large spaghetti pan...fortunately, there is a step up so we are safe...so long as we bail...the water is actually about 2-1/2 feet high outside the door! We have applied a barrier at the door this morning at 8am or so when the city sirens went off alerting us to very high water activity....I got lots of good pictures which I will post a bit later...bailing first!
What a City Venice is!
Tonight we must drink lots of Vino to warm our cold and shriveled hands and feet! Sorry folks, no Dwarven Forge work today for me!

Stefan;

Sit on the first floor landing and start chanting, "Stroke! Stroke!" and see how long it takes your neighbors to get nervous.
First alternative: buy a life jacket and whistle.
Second alternative: stand on the balcony of your apartment and yell "I'm the king of the world!"

All BS aside, when are you coming home, where all you need to worry about is falling cranes and lunatics?

Interesting expressions on the faces of people - like it's a bother, but sort of just like another day at work...

Does give me some ideas for the dungeon, though!

I like the sale sign on the door in the third picture;
"Liquidazione" Indeed! Especially if he can't get his merchandise out quickly enough!

Is this from a storm in the Adriatic, or just from rains/snow/melt in the Alps?

Jim, believe it or not, it's mostly from high winds! At least that's what they tell me...It also goes with the tides...so when there is high water, air raid sirens go off in the early morning to alert everyone and then the waters come in around 10am and go down around 2ish....

So, it's almost like the Venetians are blind?

Ohhhh PF... GROAN!

I feel you deserve a reprimand for this.... this... "joke", but I fear that any recognition will only encourage you.....

I... what else can be said...

Except that I hope you stop being a merchant of such Venice jokes....
