So much rain this summer of 2017

It’s been hard to make plans this … April, May, June, July. Wet it has been in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville for our first spring and summer since moving into A Bitty Better. See the water on the leaves and house? See the puddle where the Town of Salina needs to fix the street…
