It’s raining, it’s pouring and the old man is snoring has been the predominate weather situation throughout this soggy spring. It has been tempting to stay inside. We can’t do much in the garden or on the property except during brief dry spurts. These opportunities to stay in make us appreciate the ability to look at radar on our phones.
