Hail, Rain, Flood

Today we had a kind of subtropical storm with rain and lots of hail……the street in front of our house turned into a little wild river….I was really happy that our cellar came of this completely dry. The window in the cellar looked like a fish tank.

We had  heavy rain for many days here, even before this storm, so the new overflow zone of the Danube has become rather large. This zone was designed after our big flood in 2013. After that it has become not only a relief for the people of this part of the bank side, it’s a great retreat area for birds like gulls, cormorants, ducks and herons…..

Here are some views on the zone (before the storm, now it will be much larger….)
