Exclamation crazy weather

so its january in Atlanta and i just had to clear five inches of snow off the boat cover. I cant get out of my driveway and its now sleeting with freezing rain on the way. Did the great white north move south?!?! The sad part is when I lived in Michigan we never got snowed in. I might be stuck til wednesday!

well all the snow in the netherlands is gone, and the temp. is about 52 fahrenheit and off course germany, belgium, luxembourgh and the netherlands are having problems with al the melt water because of the high temps here in europe, just like in australia villages are toally filled with water, rivers are overfloated etc....

its every year the same,.....wish it would be summer.......

greatz, ed

I thought I was done shoveling snow, I am going to have to move farther south if this keeps up. We are going to stay around the freezing mark til saturday, with lows getting into the teens. It is just hard for me to fathom having interstates shut down like this, but on the news the DOT mentioned 1800 miles of interstate in Metro Atlanta and only 45 trucks.

at the second film on 1.29 minutes the cows are normaly standing on the left side of the dike about 15 ft lower.

so snow is wunderfull untill it melts......and al the melting snow water from the european wintersport resorts comes together in the netherlands and at this moment snow is melting everywere in these countries.........

hai shrew....

we have the same here in holland.....people who have forgotten to make their anchor lines ore ropes in the harbour longer........now a lot of boats are standing straight with their nose pointed to the bottom........in arnhem (thats the city where the river the rhine comes in to the netherlands from germany) the water has reached a level of 15.7 meters (618.11 inches)higher than normal.....so i guess you now how the city looks.......like brisbane maybe

for a little impression the quikest i could find

http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...ngen+2011&aq=f

the first 9 films are from holland

on wensday i was in the east of holland and were i was with my boat during the summer on the river the ijssel (wide about 75 mtrs or 3000 inch) standing with my car on the bridge of the higway.....as far as i couls see....only water......no land, no animals.......nothing.....so we have big problems to.........

on the 3th film even the big ships cant go under the bridge through any more...

one the first movie you see 12.05 + NAP.....normaly the water is 4.05 + NAP that means that normaly the water is 4.05 mtr higher than the level in amsterdam (almost the same as sea level) so now the level is 8 meters higher ( 315 inch) one a lot of places the quay is normaly 4 meters (158 inch) higher than the water level.......so now you now that on some places the water on land is more than 4 meters high.....in these areas are a lot of campsites with mobile homes, caravans, etc......now we call those homes and caravans submarines....so believe me....no fun in the east and south of the netherlands......



and today trere is no quay to stand on

normaly here is no water at al, just sheeps and cows
