What a year so far, first the snow, then bitter cold, then more snow, i think i have had 2 or 3 nice days so far just to tease me, i have tried to cut the lawn 3 times and drove the mower into the shop while its raining on me, my back yard where my septic system is is a bog you stand on it and sink 4 inches, the grass is already 8 inches plus, i will probably have to cut it down with a weed wacker at this rate, no small task as the area is about 75 x 100 feet, yesterday we had almost 2 feet of water covering about 25 acres of our farm, now its raining again and we have thunder storms, just lovely, no seat time for me anytime soon. i was hoping to till the gardens this weekend

Sorry to hear the issues you are having. I could use some of that rain down here as we are 6" behind so far this year!

Wow. I feel for you. It has not been any better here. Saw large John Deere tractor with dual rears stuck in the middle of a field today. Down to the axles. Four wheel drive. Was pulling a set of disks. Field looked dry too. Looking good here for the long weekend here ( so far) !!!! You can keep the rain please. I think we are getting it next week. Noel

It's been wet and cold here with above average rain. It looks like we will finally get a decent weekend though with temps above normal and no rain until at least Monday. It's been a strange winter/spring all over.
