"Cut off." Westervoort, Holland.

There are still a few people who live in the floodplains,
that's quiet an undertaking at the moment I guess, every time
with a little boat to the dike where your car is parked, and
hoping you didn't forget anything.

The water has reached it highest point and is definitely receding now.

I like the first one. The feeling of water flooding over the field is really convincing.

Thanks Keith, I think the people who live on the farm in the back are thinking exactly the same about it! ;-D
