After the rain
Luckily, I didn't get water in my basement. We live on a hill and have never gotten anything but some drops of water by the bulkhead in the basement. My backyard has an area that dips down. It's great for sledding, but not so much for all this rain.
This is also where my blueberries live. They have been sitting in several inches of water for a few days now. We'll have to wait and see if they make it through. I knew we got lots of water down there, but it has only flooded once before. It's certainly my own fault if I lose the bushes.
You may also be able to see all the trash that collects here over the winter. My yard seems to be the area that the wind deposits any trash that is flying around. Every spring I have to clean it up again.
The nice thing is that we're supposed to have temps in the 60s and possibly make a run for the 70s this week, with lots of sun. All of my overgrown lettuces and cole crops will be hardened off and planted later this week. That will free up space to start my tomatoes.
