Acqua alta’d out!
OK, OK! Got it! Acqua alta!
Been there, done that, got the (soggy) T-shirt! Enough already!!
More than two weeks of this now… A river running through Calle dei Fuseri every morning. Constant timing of one’s errands to coincide with outgoing tides. The limited fashion choices that necessarily include damp trouser legs and funky-smelling rubber boots.
And the rain just keeps on comin’... I am so over it!
C’mon, it’s Christmastime! Where’s that cheery nip in the air, and the bustle of holiday shoppers? Shouldn’t we be tipping those first cups of steaming cioccolata calda instead of shivering over caffè corretto?
