the floods

With all the flooding in France right now, this post seemed appropriate.  These high water marks ("crue" means rise in water level) are next to the front door of the church in yesterday's post.  We have been told our home in Amboise was built in 1850, so we assume it was flooded along with the rest of the town in 1856, and maybe also  in 1866.   As I have said before that with all of the many flood prevention measures taken since then, the likelihood of another flood of the town is quite low.  That's a good thing.
