Well, I haven't been able to see the river since G has been working but if he gets home early enough we're going to try to see it. See the River Po is apparently overflowing thanks to all that rain we've been having.
Po has been getting so high that the bridge at Piacenza (the major city close to us) colapsed.... see here for the news story: http://www.nce.co.uk/news/structures/partial-collapse-of-bridge-over-po-river-italy/5201352.article
A friend of ours who lives in Cremona across the river crossed the bridge there today and said it was scary. G crossed it last night and said "wow! it's really overflowed!" I just want to check it out cuz I've never seen Po overflowed or that high! If we get over there to check it out I'll post some pictures.
