ACQUA ALTA IN VENICE, DECEMBER 3RD 2010 – 136 CM

by

Here are some of the images of yesterday’s Acqua Alta , which rose up to 136 cm, taken by people living in Venice. The water was so high, that in Saint Marks Square they could not even put up the walkways!

Look at the video as well, to see how the Venetian just cope with this!

    Before leaving for a couple of weeks, I hoisted everything up the stairs, knowing whatever was sitting in the entryway would be bobbing away in my absence. 136 cm? That’s a real headache.

    We’ll see what the rest of December brings…wellies at the ready!

    The original engineers of Venice did a mighty job, anchoring her so firmly.

    I’m glad I’m not a shop keeper, facing the clean up, I’m lazy about wiping spilled water on my floor!

    Nice post with excellent pictures. The pictures alone would make me want to go there, because they show how much character the place has!
