Last Wednesday I just arrived home when the fury of the sky fell on the Earth.
In Ehrendingen and surroundings a violent hailstorm started and went on for half an hour, followed by violent rain!
The main road crossing the village became an impetuous river with half metre water, and all the fields and streets became white as in winter!
The force of nature was impressive!
The buses and cars still on the road became like insects into the sea.
In some neighbouring villages they even remained without drinkable water for some days, because everything was contaminated with mud.
A lot of basements, houses, shops where flooded and invaded by water and mud.
A real scary scenery.
But thanks to the assiduous work of the fire brigade, in a couple of days all the main damages where fixed and the mud and water sent away and dried.
Unfortunately, as in this case, even the quiet Switzerland can sometimes become very… angry and upset!

I think this storm is full of drama – hail, rain, mud, floods. Wow. The pictures really made me stop and look.
Even if pictures of bad happenings… thank you for your stopping by and look!

That sounds scary! I’ve never seen a flood before, and I hope I never do!
