No pictures could capture what this month of April has been like. We have already had almost 13 inches of rain and 2 to 4 more inches are expected in the remaining days of the month that will surpass the 150-year historical record for rainfall. In other words, it has really been wet outside. The rain makes for a lot of flooding in low lying areas but we live on higher ground. On our property the backyard becomes super-saturated and turns into a bog that makes for wet muddy feet when we take the Rotts out for a walk. Multiply wet muddy feet times 12 and you get the picture. Hopefully it will soon end and we can get out and enjoy the trees and the grass and the flowers.
