East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai


Still High & Dry (thanks goodness)

The emergency is now under control.
The Belbo river remained in its argins this time, and it’s not raining anymore.
And we have enough supplies to last a week without going to the supermarket (that’s five miles away).
The weather did hit hard both north and south of where we live – there were no victims, but lots of damage. People were evacuated from towns, areas were flooded, and in the very center of Turin we lost two river boats that used to do the tourist run in summer.

As a side note, the line of submerged lamp-posts at round minute 2:10 in the video is a place where I used to go walking with my girlfriend at the time of university.

Anyway, situation almost back to normal, there’s a lot of work to be done because in the past two days we had other things keeping us busy (like, taking books and electronics upstairs just in case – and today back to the ground floor again).
