Apart from lovely architecture, fine beer, complicated languages, history and the attendant abundance of battlefields, the one thing Central Europe can really boast of is extreme weather. Winters are long and very cold, brief Springs and Autumns are pleasant while Summers (usually) are short and very warm. But over the last 15 years, the weather seems to be more like South-East Asia. So today we have a big flood emergency in Prague after more than 4 days of non-stop rain in Bohemia.
I took these photos at lunchtime today, about 300 metres from my apartment. Thankfully I had the foresight to live on a hill given the history of floods in Prague. So the metro and most of the bridges are closed, which makes commuting a non-starter. Hopefully a bit of normality by the morning.
