It started raining at half way on my walk. Then kept up the patter on my hood until almost home again. The restless gulls were wandering aimlessly across the prairies.
An errand in the car showed how incredibly wet everything is at the moment. Huge puddles in the fields. Standing water in every dip of the lanes. Mud splashed across the road wherever vehicles have brushed the verge. There was even a wet snow blizzard on the way home.
