When you live in a river city like Dresden, you get to where you are aware of what the river is doing. For us, we check out the graffiti under the bridge every time we drive by. Sometimes, when it is really up, you measure it by how disrupted your running trail is. This week, we are officially at warning stage 3. Roads are closed! When it finally reached 666cm, we had to go gawk with the rest of the locals. It was impressive!

Here is a painting showing the super high levels reached in 2002. Not the white square with the words in it, but the yellow and black about 10 feet above the ground. We are nowhere near that level thankfully. As you follow the metal fence with your eyes over the next two pics, you can see where we are today...

The moon has nothing to do with the flood (right?) but it was pretty.

This pedestrian bridge is normally about 15 above water level.

Jack was excited to get out. With the past two months of snow and ice, he has developed a bad case of cabin fever.

We stopped for ice cream and Logan had to ride the horse at the Eiscafe.

Here are some picks from our December here in Dresden. We had a wonderful Christmas with lots of snow!

The Christmas market this year was better than ever. It was the 576th year.

And some shots from around town...

A party for three birthday kids, including Ashlyn, the 11 year old! And some fun time spent with friends.

Christmas Eve, the presents!
