I'm gathering pictures for my "German food post" which will hopefully be ready in a couple of days. I originally wanted to have it posted by this past weekend, but its been a long and stressful few days here.
It started friday evening, we had the storm of storms. I've never seen so much rain come down in such a short time. The thunder and lightning was incredible and lasted a good few hours. The balcony at my grandparents' place started flooding, so my grandfather was out there with a bucket trying to get the water under control. In the end we were lucky, on the news it said that apparantly entire streets were closed due to flooding, and 2 people were even killed. The hospital around the corner lost power and the airport was closed for over 2 hours. Basements everywhere were under water.
Then on saturday my grandmother got really sick. We didn't know what it was so naturally everyone was very worried about her. We had the emergency doctor make 2 housecalls yesterday because she was feeling so awful and couldn't keep any food down. There was talk of taking her to the hospital.
Thankfully she woke up this morning feeling a lot better, she's eating again and seems to be healthier.
So needless to say its been quite a weekend here in Germany.
I'll have the food post done hopefully in a few days, I just wanted to give you all an update and let everyone know I haven't gone M.I.A
What did you do this weekend? All Americans, did you have a good 4th of July?
Oh and, Happy Belated Birthday Sarah!
