Thank you all. I hope the eastern part of my country which is hit very hard will do the best they can. In the western part, where I live, there isn't any danger any more - fortunately!

Thanks for your comments, fellow bloggers!

From my entry on the blog of Dr. Masters:
As I've promised yesterday I've made a morning walk to the banks of Rhine River when high waters reached their crest (7 meters = 23 feet). Amazing to be suddenly at eye level with the swans. Mind, Mainz City isn't in danger of being flooded since it was fortified against the river in the 19th century. So we are very lucky compared to those poor people in the southeastern parts of our country and the adjacent countries.
