Aqua Alta

p1010230In the news today Venice has been hit with the  worst flooding in more than 20 years with water one and a half metres above normal and the highest since 1986.   On November 1 and then later on November 13 there were two ‘little’ aqua altas.   The fondamenta infront of my building was blocked in both directions and when I asked for a vaporetto ticket to Murano I found that the service was suspended due to  aqua alta because the vaporetto would not have been able to pass under the Ponte Tre Arche in Canareggio.

Life goes on – the fruit and veggie shop at Canareggio.
