Kay Furey bought some boots in Venice. It's a fairly rare occasion for the water to rise and flood the streets, but when it does the street merchants have to move their products to higher ground and several start selling colorful plastic boots. Portable walkways were assembled which were about two feet high and four feet wide. On this day (Nov. 5), the water probably got 12-15 inches deep and lasted for 3-4 hours.
