Friday Five and water





Good morning,
again a week is flying over and it's time to join in




I

I often complain, that we have such little water in our area.
And I'm dreaming to spend my summertime somewere by lakes and rivers,
relaxing at a beach...

In this week we got lakes and rivers.
A lot of rain... and our creek begun to toss...






II

A 10 years old girl is drowned, an older woman is still missing.
And some cats. My cat, fortunately, is here.





III

Many helpers were busy around the clock...



The whole night they were fishing branches, trees and other stuff out of the water.
These photos are only from the beginning,
 later most streets were blocked and bridges flooded...






IV
Let's go to another subject: books,
 which I was reading in last time.
 There's a famous graphic nouvel "The Night Bookmobile" (original in English)
and a heartbreaking story about the alldays life of a very unique family.
Have searched, but it isn't translated from German to another languages. 
Reminds me a little of "The Lonely Polygamist" by Brady Udall





V

At last water from it's beautiful side.





Have a dry and sunny weekend

  4. Oh Mascha, how awful! In Tucson we had monsoon rains each summer, with rushing flooding down the dry washes that often took lives. This year I heard a family of 9 were killed in Sabino Canyon from the flooding. So so sad!!!! Loved your rain-kissed flower photo and the foliage. Thank you for linking me in to Tanya. I actually am able to finally do it again! I hope I don't have any more issues, but I will let you know if I do. THANK you so much for helping me out. I really have appreciated it.

  7. I don't feel quite right saying what wonderful photos (although they are very good photos) knowing the heartbreak lurking behind the flooding. I'm glad you and your family remained safe.
