You'd wonder why the Dutch had built all those dams against the sea, when most of the water comes from above

It rained when I got there, it rained when I took zmama to Osnabruck and the others had to cancel their trip to Amsterdam (it was TOO wet even for BRITS!!! :eek: ), it rained when I drove back home yesterday.
When I got in Belgium it even got worse, it was The Flood in all and for all.

Then all of a sudden when crossing into France a nice sun beckoned me!
And today we have here 25C :coolgrin:

Oh, and someone told me that the dutch originally invented windmills as pumps to syphon the water away. Then they used them to power sawing mills to cut the wood to build their ships. Then when they got bored they didn't know what to use them for and decided the could grind grains
