Switzerland under water....

No, I don’t mean in the financial sense, but just having too much water from three weeks of rain. All our lakes, reservoirs and rivers are all full to the brim. Rivers are so high and flowing so fast with muddy waters creating waves as it moves downstream. Raging waters are flowing with immense power over the small dam gates which are meant to hold the water back for the hydroelectric power stations built several miles apart on most rivers. It is fascinating to see so much water which has turned into muddy colour from the pristine clear clean waters we are used to seeing, almost clean enough to drink it. We have too much water and some parts of the world are hungry for more water, the the Southwest region in the USA. If I had to choose of the two, I would take the “too much water” over not enough.
