“We know how to live with high water.”

Um, ok…but why would you want to?

Now, I liked Venice- it was a beautiful city when we visited in September- but to have it regularly flood into my store/house/school?  I could barely take the extra rain we got last spring!

AND the canals are technically the city’s sewage lines, so, um, ew?

Check out the picture of St. Marks square during the flood- and ours from only a few months ago…

Now that’s a lot of water…
