This summer I experienced something I had never experienced before. There was a flood in Fet municipality. The flood was at its worst around June 10th. My grandmother and grandfather live in Lillestrøm so we had to go there to help them move furniture. We had to take a piano and sofa to our house. We put some of the furniture in the attic and my aunt and uncle took some.
We weren't affected by the flood because we live high up on a hill that's called Garderåsen.
Down in Fetsund is a place called Øya. It was hit hard by the flood but not as hard as Tretten.
I play football and one of our games was cancelled because fedrelandet was under water. My grandfather has a boat in the boat marina in Fetsund. He had to move it to Gansvika because there is a floating dock there. I had a good time during the flood.
