High water at home
This week, in the Rhine close to home, water did rise to 12.40m NAP (approx. sea level). To give you a reference to my floor in the living room is at 10.60m NAP. Don’t worry, we are still dry behind the dykes This water level, which is a once in every five-year event, only flows over the summer dykes. The winter dykes can keep on other 3 m of water at bay.
For us, kayakers, it gives a nice expanse of water and a whole new territory to explore. Today was beautiful, the light was changing constantly. I explored the nature area Meinderswijk, close to Arnhem.
So, just to share this enjoyable moment, an extra blog post with some photos and a small video of the Beaver that passed by.
whoah this blog is great i really like studying your articles. Stay up the great paintings! You realize, many individuals are hunting around for this information, you could aid them greatly.
I am not certain where you’re getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend a while learning more or understanding more. Thank you for excellent information I was in search of this information for my mission.
I should have been out there too! The water level is crazy! Thanks for posting.
Yes, it was crazy. Unfortunately, the water level is dropping fast. It was much more difficult today. 14.25m NAP Lobith is the minimum for the summer dykes.
