I’ve been blogging about my fabulous trip to the quaint village of Vernazza in Cinque Terre, showing the breath-taking photos. Unfortunately, last Tuesday, only two weeks after I visited there, the area was hit by torrential rains and subsequent flooding.
Here are some before and after photos of the devastation that they are now having to deal with. Thanks to Dona and Scott for sharing them with me.
Very sad. They have a lot of work ahead of them. If you are in a position to help, please do so.
On an unrelated note, today is the first day of National Novel Writers Month (NaNoWriMo). Although I won’t be going for word count this year, I will be using this as motivation to commit to working on my book for two hours each day for the month of November. It all starts with a commitment and a plan. Are you NaNoWriMoing?
Watch for pictures of Rome tomorrow.
