hope we won´t get drowned in Dresden as the Elbe river is on flood stage today. Hope the water will fall until thursday for the boats won´t run on flood stage. Parts of Austria, the Czech republic and Germany are flooded as we had some severe thunderstorms and heavy rain during the last two weeks.
By the way Dresden has 9 (!) paddlesteamers, one still fired with coal. It´s the largest fleet of steamboats in Europe and I believe all over the world.
