A baling out evening, after a violent storm that flooded the basement up to the first steps to the ground floor. With a few neighbourghs we made a human chain with buckets, but we had to give up after almost 3 hours for it was a Sisyphus' task, we tried to dig little chanels to drive running waters toward the road and away from our houses. We were all soaked to the skin as if we had fall into 1 meter high of water (which actually happened to my neighbourgh Brigitte!)
The rain has stopped now (it's 10 pm here) and the water level is very slowly decreasing into the basement. We are waiting for the firemen though, who are coming as soon as possible with a water pump. We are not a priority for them, as some poor people have some water not into the basement but into the house. I wonder what the river Seine will look like tomorrow morning...

30 and Over

Are you an "older" polyvore-addict?! This group is for you... you can submit the sets of your choice... fashion, art, eclectic... this is just a place where we can relate more to each other...

The Hiding Place

The Hiding Place

Our mantra to deal with problems is - delete, block, ignore; report where necessary and Never Ever rise to the bait!
A private club for those of us who want to escape political sets, celebrity fan-fiction sets and fashion and anything controversial at all - who want a place for art and creativity to reign.

Cats and you

Cats and you

This group is for cat lovers. Any set is welcome, interior, fashion, funny, vintage, landscape, portrait, etc AS FAR AS THERE IS a "visible" cat into it :)
Please make sure there's NO FUR (real, faux or printed) item in your set. The only fur allowed in this group must be alive.
Non observance of these simple rules will lead to the rejection of the set and the member will be removed, with no notice.
Thank you, and have fun!
