an ape in a tree
and no sign of a rainbow
a penguin floats by
Yes folks, another "flood of the century" is upon us; the highest waters for more than 500 years in one town on the Danube.
The last "flood of the century" hereabouts was in 2002.
As man battles to control the forces of nature by erecting ever higher dams or dykes and lately portable steel and concrete slot-in walls to protect his flood plain properties there are occasional news reports of animals being rescued from a zoo.
Some animals, we must assume, will have perished (not reported), and some will have made their bids for freedom. No news yet on the penguins.
