Not much has been happening here. The weather has been unseasonably cool for this area most days and we are still getting a lot of rain. On Sunday, we had torrential rains and at one point it was so bad I couldn't see across the street. Many streets were flooded, especially those that run under overpasses. Cars were marooned in water and basements and yards were flooded.
Melissa's backyard looked like a rice paddy and her basement flooded. They have only lived there a couple of months and didn't realize that the property adjoining theirs behind is elevated an entire foot more than theirs. This causes the water to pour out of the neighbour's yard into her yard. She had quite a mess to clean up. Luckily many of her friends were able to give a hand.
We live on a hill and at these times I'm very happy that we do. Though mowing the terraces is a hard job, rain doesn't run into our basement. However, the neighbour to the east gets all the run-off from up the hill because of the way her yard is sloped. She is in Nunavut and has a tenant. I sure hope he took care of her basement for her.
Not much else has been happening here. With the rainy weather, I haven't been getting out much with the boys and we are all bored to death. Hoping tomorrow is a nicer day.
I know I haven't been over to visit many of you but am hoping to stop by soon.
