I should be grateful that all this precipitation is rain rather than snow. Someone calculated that if this were snow, it would be more than two feet … and that would make me even sadder than the mud field out front. It really IS ugly, though.
It’s the dog’s yard, so it probably wouldn’t be lovely anyway, but all the rain has melted away any remnant of grass that might have been there. The frequent wind storms have left a far larger collection of branches and twigs there, too. There’s a lot of cleanup to do when finally, it isn’t raining, snowing, or sleeting.
