Split-second story. Or long agonising hours, waiting… This time last year, water levels on the River Elbe were rising. And rising. And then rising some more. My friend’s parents live right on the river and it looked like their home would be flooded for the second time in 10 years.
A few of us went down to help fill sandbags. Hundreds of them. It was all we could do. Then the waiting began. In the end, their property was safe. Many others were not.
A split-second story, capturing hard work, friendship and the power of nature.
