Water Water Everywhere!

Some of you may know that the New England area has been hit with a record amount of rainfall. This is the of the town of West Warwick, only miles from my house. We have been pumping water out of our basement since Monday and as I write this I have just turned the pumps on again. I am not complaining. I am very fortunate compared to these people. This is the second time in three weeks they have had to deal with this much water. This does not happen in Rhode Island. We have snowstorms and the occasional tropical storm, not flooding like this. The weather forecast is great for the next few days. But as the old saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers," we do not need any more rain! And with the way Mother Nature works we could be in drought conditions in August! That is my post for today! Easter is Sunday, I have nothing! I am making a list and getting it done this morning! Maybe I can return to being creative next week.
Thanks for visiting!

I was just thinking of you again this morning so I was happy to hear that you are okay. I feel for all of the people that are in the worst of it. It must be terrible. Hopefully the April showers came in March this year and you guys won't have to contend with more rain.
