Rain Woes

We do not have water in our basement, our jobs are not affected by the floods, and I am thankful for those things, but seriously, I think all this water has had an impact on everyone in some way.

Madeline has probably been the most put out by it, although Sean's golf lessons have been postponed twice.  We were pleased that we did not lose one soccer night to the rain during the regular season; the tournament at the end was cancelled because of it, though.  Then of M's whole week of field trips, 4 of 5 days were changed.  Monday they did go to the outdoor pool and park, and it didn't rain till the evening.  Tuesday they were to go to Wascana Park for National Aboriginal Day celebrations and ended up not going because of the wet.  Then their three day camping trip got cancelled because they roads into Circle Square were all flooded.  That was a sad one.  They got a carnival afternoon yesterday and a trip to the mini golf and movie place today to try to make up for some of it.

I mowed the lawn tonight and even though it hasn't rained in a while, it's still wet.  Pretty small deal compared to my friend's parents who farm and seeded 1% of their land this year.  Crazy.

How have you been impacted by the wet this spring?
