Weekend Wrap-up June 4: Rain, Rain, Go Away

Well, at least the rain has stopped.

Over the past few weeks, it seemed like the deluge would never stop. Highways were closed due to flooding, farmers fields are lakes, and it has been impossible to mow the grass or stain the deck (48 hours of no rain before and after? Ha!)

Planting anything outside in spring is risky due to frost, but the general accepted ‘safe’ date is usually after the third weekend of May. Two weeks later we are still getting frost warnings. “Cover your plants.”

Back to the rain. A small river winding through the city, usually about three meters wide and a meter deep (12 feet X 3 feet) has swelled past its banks covering the walking path beside it as well as the trees and vegetation, making it look more like a lake.

I guess it was a apt time to purchase a kayak.
