Rain Rain Go Away

The rain just doesn't want to stop! This April was the wettest April in history with Cincinnati getting more rainfall than ever before. I feel like I live in a tropical climate during rainy season only we don't have the tropical heat to go along with the rain.

Our basement which often leaks a bit during rain has had a constant puddle. The puddle has turned into a lake several times causing me some problems. The basement is where I work and when my molds are flooded it's hard to get work done!

I should buy some ducks. Basement ducks. If they get bored in the basement they could go swim around in one of the many large ponds that have formed in our backyard. If it was warmer I would be worried about alligators because the backyard is more of a wetlands/marsh than anything else.

The plants sure look happy, though. Everything is very green. I'm looking forward to one day (probably in June) when it dries out enough for me to plant a very large garden in the back. I'm wising up this year and building a raised garden. It will be six to eight inches higher than the rest of the yard. Last year my garden got off to a decent start and then all my plants drowned. Very sad.
