My home region is drowning in a major flood right now. Flooding is not unusual, and people know how to handle it, but this year it is really, really bad. We are not directly affected, except for my mom’s office that is flooded. Our house is safe and dry, but it’s just horrible to see how swaths of the familiar environment disappeared in water. The Mr and I had to go to Vienna on Sunday, and we barely made it before train service was shut down. It’s the major route from Vienna to Germany, so people are stranded all around. This is something else.
