FTA: Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas declared a state of emergency for most of the nation on Sunday and pledged 300 million crowns ($15.11 million) for relief efforts.

Wait? They aren't on the Euro?

No. I was just in Prague (lovely city, so sorry to see the flooding pictures). They use Czech crowns, although in very touristy areas Euros are accepted.

I think they tried to get in the EU but weren't let in for some reason.  Now they're better off not being in it.  It's becoming quite the tourist destination because prices are actually reasonable and it's pretty close by the rich countries.

Germany didn't want to compete because it would have pulled the value of the euro up and devalued their own currency

They failed internally to adopt the euro several times.  They are in the EU though.

Only the worst flooding in a decade, which means it was just as bad or worse in the past. How far back are we counting for climate change? 100yrs? Did it start 100yrs ago for them?

Clarification: One example of flooding can not be said to be caused by climate change

                  However the increase in incidents of flooding do fit the models perfectly.

They did not meet the requirements for many years and at the time they had a Euro-skeptic PM (Klaus) who would not even fly the EU flag over the Prague Castle. Which, in hindsight, staying off the Euro was a very good thing because they can control their own exchange rates.

Slovakia was so excited to beat the Czechs to the Euro - It got them a few car factory contracts, but SK is much more expensive now and the Czechs got the last laugh.

It's a bad thing to assume. Worse yet is to assume they take credit cards.

They will take Euros at a rate where they make a profit on the exchange after they tell you the card machine is broken.

It's like paying for things in Mexico with USD.

Climate Change all over us out here.

We went from Spring to Summer this weekend. We called it weather back in the day.

Prague may be a very touristy city, but it is still worth visiting. Very pretty city that escaped being ruined during WW2. The exchange rate for USD vs Koruna is still much better than the rate for USD vs EUR. Plus the beer is so cheap and there is so much to see there. They have a farking castle complex right in the middle of the city!

And the Prague women...wrrrarrrr!

Yeah, I'd been warned about that before I went. So I made sure I always had crowns on me.
