The cat died sometime during the night. Poor kitty...I made him as comfortable as possible and he just sort of drifted away. Now I have to figure out what kind of funeral he'll get.

The rain stopped and the creek didn't rise any higher. So far, so good.

The rooftiles probably came loose during the last windstorm. For now there are buckets catching the leaks, and in the morning I'll have to fight my way into the cluttered attic and see if I can put the rooftiles back in place or replace them if they're broken. I can do it from the inside, as theyre is no insulation, just the tiles, between us and outside. Good thing, too...as this house is a very tall three stories and I have a fear of heights.

Poor darling...
I've lost too many kitties to count, and each is a tragedy.
Floods, storms, et. al., are nefarious forces we must resist.

Remember: they WILL pass, and you can recover.
Losing loved ones (felines) is something else. Burial, creamation, whatever, - do what's best.
I have seven kitties in a row between the roots or my snow bushes in my front yard.
Naturally we 'planted' lovers side-by-side....

As a kid, I can still remember the look of our cat's eyes when he was runned over by a car. Cats are supposed to have no expression, but he had sadness in his eyes that he was going to die. He would usually climb on your knee to be petted when you sit next to him.

Oooooooh! That made me cry! Losing a beloved pet is such a horrible thing to endure, and making that decision to let them go is even harder.... I cried daily for a year, for my dog.

Susie, what town is this? Is this happening everywhere near your home, or did a levee break, river overflow? Floods are so devastating, and I've just been lucky where I live. I feel bad for everyone affected. Please update us when you can.

Sorry you have to go thru this, Susie, and I hope life gets back to normal soon. But, I gotta say...what an absolutely charming area.

You are absolutely correct. Where Susie lives is beautiful and for some years I didn't live far from her.
Susie has my phone numbers and knows that I can reach her in about an hour or so.
Yet what help would an independant lady like Susie want from me ? Floods or not.
Can I explain ? The snow on the Pyrenees can cause serious flooding around Susies region.

I have asked her to come and stay with me in England for a while, until these disasters pass. She has so far turned me down Either she doesn't like the idea of my cooking, or she thinks I'm an ugly bas**rd.

I must've missed that pm.

Watch out, Barry...I might just take you up on that offer. I could do the cooking, and you could teach me to appreciate ugly bas**rds.

Scrolling through those pictures on response #21 I sort of noticed that the spot of where those photos are taken off changes. It sorts of goes like this:

bottom
top
middle

Look at the hedges on the left and the post on the right to see their positions. So what happen to the sign that said "Rue" in the middle photo. Was the sign always there or did it get washed away by the flood?

The first picture was taken at two pm, just as the flooding began to get bad.

The second one was taken two hours later, when it began to get bad, and the Townhall was closing roads and putting up signs and getting people to move their cars away from danger...I guess the sign must've been placed just after the first picture was taken.

The last one was taken this afternoon. I don't know if the sign washed away or was recuperated...but the flooding didn't get too much higher after about four in the afternoon. Beyond the picture, the road turns to the left, which is now slimy with mud.

In the middle picture, the blue bench is all the way under water.

I see it, Susie...wow. (the lined up tree trunks helped.) And I love your area; looks a lot like rural Germany when I spent a little time there. (Don't tell your neighbors!)
