Good morning guys!
This time I'll tell you about the floods here where I live!
As you may have heard there's been some intense mess in Rome, but fortunately not as severe as in other locations (see Tuscany, Sardinia a while ago, or the cities of Liguria)... Today is still raining here, and as my house is relatively safe, some of my neighbours (those who live in a brand-new residence of terraced houses) are in deep shit quite literally-- Their sewage system collapsed. Some of them don't have electricity either!
I was one of those unlucky assholes that had to go to work (a late evening shift) on that January 31 D:
I have to confess that the messiest time was in the morning, infact the storm started around 2 am, and as it kept raining the whole day, the worst of the storm happened in the morning.
I didn't take many pictures, just a few when I was going off to work.
This was the sidewalk and the road in front of my house.
Despite the never-ending rain, the situation was more normal than I thought, at the airport:
There were some flight who were fatally delayed, that was obvious, but I like to note that the most of them were late on arrival in the first place--
The morning after, I decided to take a few pictures of how everything around looked.
I didn't take pictures of my neighbourhood houses 'cause I don't think that it was a nice thing to do, but everyone was dealing with everyone's mess.
It's nice to see that, despite everyone can't stand each other, in case of need we're always up to lend a hand ^_^;
I took a walk to check on the canals and drains.
The place were I live is placed in the middle of Tiber's estuary, so instead of one river we have a thousand tiny rivers.
"Fiumicino" is called like this, exactly because is placed in the middle of these "rivers".
I'll show you some bits of one in these pictures.
As I walked around, some of the trees were broken by the strong winds:
Part of the road is gone too, LOL:
The day before, the water filled this place... The morning after just a few pounds remain...
Same goes for here:
The water is still at a higher level than usual, though:
It's a feast for the birdies ^_^;
BIRDIES! BIRDIES >o< !!!
I was glad to see that in other zones the sewage drains were all right:
And to close this report, a cool shot from someone's garden... Doesn't it give you a Japanese vibe ^_^; ..?
And that's all.
As you see the situation is pretty troublesome, but still manageable, at least in my place. --SO DON'T WORRY FOR ME x'D
--Now since the winter has been so messy, I hope that this year's spring will be a decent one >_>#
