Observations and thoughts during a stay in Venice
Mr. Foster, this is also the season of high waters. The media don't seem to know anything about Venice but P S Marco. Please report what campi are affected by the various heights, How high is Margherita? How high before the vaporettos are affected and which ones? Where can't you get off the vaporetto without wading?I have seen 130 predicted. It should be interesting.
M. Mueden, Basically, I stayed inside today. It was raining, and a 10:30 acqua alta alarm...But last night in the wee hours the water rose 143-144cm above normal. Not too many people on the vaporettos at 2-3AM, but even with the floating landing stations, it is difficult. That height is above the basic boot (knee high). There was a strong SE breeze, plus a stronger than normal tide. As for Christmas Day, I will be out throughout the day, and will make a report.
