Since few days,I have been sick. I almost decided not to go to school today because of that, but I wanted so badly to get the result of the first exam that I went anyway.
My morning started nicely with Leonie relaxing on my lap,looking like a baby.
I saw from the window that it is raining really heavily.. Little I did know that the rain could turn to something more...
First lesson,we were given our results in order, bad grades first and best ones last. I was sure my name would be called immediately, but when half of the students had already got their test - I was thinking there must be a mistake! But no, I actually got quite good grade of french «ecriture personnel». Not the best but higher than average in our group. I was so happy!
At the lunch break,we were looking from the windows ... gosh,there is a LOT of water in the streets... Our third lesson was about in half way when people started to receive messages that the rivers nearby are flooding. What? Floods? People started to call around and we got info from the main scool building that students needs to be evacuated. We waited until we got sign to leave, I went quickly to my car.
The roads were already full of cars,water everywhere. Few roads were blocked. I decided to go around the city on other side,trying to drive more far away from the flooding river. I called R earlier,then my phoneline died for a while. I wasn't sure if I was able to go home, as I heard that the old walls what are around our city will be blocked with sand bags. I reached R again by phone and I picked him up from work on the way. There was only one road flooding inside Avignon,luckily not in our neighbourhood. Now we are safe and in warm,rain has stopped for a while. We are waiting the second rain to hit Vaucluse area at night. Crazy,right?
If you are interested,go to google and search «Avignon inondation» pictures,amazing..
