    There has been so much rainfall in western Europe the last couple of weeks. In combination with the high temperatures of the year I think next week we will be up for some good old flooding here and there.

    Are you having wet feet already?

    Getting quite critical here in the lowlands to be honest. We had a small disaster like ten years ago with flooding and despite all the promises of the government to rebuild some strategic dykes not much has happened on the water infrastructure for the rivers.

    Especially in the southern provinces I think the people are getting quite nervous with the water level rising.

    Do we need to send some fresh water in your direction Rhys?
