How is the water situation in your region,is the water pressure back to normal..
Those pics you showed of those rivers/lakes bone dry were shocking..when the sun goes down a bit I'll venture out with our dog for a walk when it cools, obviously no one should take their pet out when the sun is high with these temps.

Begin september we got 2 days with some rain . But not enough to fill our ground water levels .
Our groundwater levels are lower than in the south of Spain and Italy !
We got 2 thunderstorms with a lot of wind . The rain was heavy , but only locally in Brussels . At my place we had a few drops of rain . The soil was wet . But nothing more than that ..
Please remember what was going on in the F1 GP at Spa-Francorchamps ...
Yeah...Menacing dark clouds ...But clouds without rain !
The water pressure is OK . But with less of water flow rate.But still we have water restrictions .
Staying in the sun is impossible here . The sun burns like fire !

Here are some articles in Dutch (Flemish) from september 11 (last friday) regarding the drought in my region ..

=> https://www.hln.be/woon/extreme-droo...lpen~aa951450/
=> https://www.hln.be/in-de-buurt/kalmt...ogte~a5a80e3d/

This was a beautiful lake . 2 years back I was there for a walk in nature .
As you can see ...."Today" , It's just terrible ! A Disaster !
Actually I'm lost in words . From what is going on over here is just crazy !
I never saw this before !

Sorry to see that again, i always believe there is a reason for everything and with how covid started someone or something started the weather change like that.
I read somewhere that the ruskis's are up to dirty tricks doing things trying to mess with the weather.

Ahh those were the days my friend, some of those clips from the Belgium race were used in the film Grand Prix 66.
Drivers then were actually putting their lives on the line on those tyres in the rain.

Spa back in the day....SOOOOOO dangerous! I will never forget going to the Cinerama theater for the newly released movie....Grand Prix....in 1966; the Cinerama movie projection technology utilized three screens, so looking at the screens it was this very large "curved" viewing surface....and the sound was upgraded as well....it will always be with me!

Thank you for posting this incredible footage!
