Have you heard about this? Venice is flooded! (ps. I just realized these pics are getting cut off on my blog... click thru to see the full picture.)
It's the deepest flood in 22 years. Says the Boston Globe: "Although this flood was severe enough for the mayor to ask tourists to temporarily stay home, Venetian floods are fairly routine, several occurring every year, and residents usually take it all in stride."
Wow. People, your city is underwater! Nice that you can take it in calmly now, but maybe consider retirement options elsewhere?
