A Munich Retrospective: Here Comes the Rain Again: Summer in Munich


Although the flooding is gone, the rain continues. These photos are from June 24, 2009 when everyone was convinced that the heavy rain in Austria would cause the Isar to flood its banks. Of course the weather shaped up again, but this summer has been nothing but thunderstorms with brief (and I mean brief) sunny intervals. Munich this summer could definitely give Scotland a run for its money.

This is probably one of the days when it is more useful to have one of these around...

Everything to the left is normally a grassy place where people grill and picnic...

You can't even tell where they are doing work or where the river normally stops.

It doesn't look much like summer does it?

Where most people stand to watch the river rise...

Oh the irony! I'm doubtful that bathing is on anyone's mind...
