Optimistically, we went to check on the Arno this afternoon. After two days without (significant) downpours, and an afternoon spent gardening in almost spring-like sunshine, I'd expected the water level to have dropped to something like normal. Not a bit of it. Just as high as before, and if anything the current much stronger than it had been, with some rather impressive flotsam being carried forcefully downstream. The forecast isn't too promising either - tomorrow looks fine, but then we're due for more torrential downpours on Friday. Hmmm...
