Rainy Days on the Wet Coast

So much RAIN! I know I promised to not complain about the rain after the dreadful drought this summer, but this is ridiculous! Roads are closed due to mudslides and flood, it just keeps coming and coming. Making up for lost time, I guess. It's not supposed to stop raining even for a minute today, and rain is in the forcast for the entire week. They are not even predicting any sunny breaks. Doesn't mean we won't get any, but it's bleak out there. I took a bunch of pics this morning- my driveway is a new river, my existing stream is a torrent, my little root cellar is a great doggie swimming pool. Even the dogs don't want to go out much. My house is wet and muddy from little doggie feet going out to pee, then coming back in soaked 2 minutes later. The weatherman is predicting a change by the end of the week... flurries and snow. Not sure which I prefer. I just mostly want it to be spring again!

I couldn't get home from school today! The road is closed to Crofton on the north route, had to drive to Herd Rd. Are you stuck in or can you make it out?? I'm not sure where the road is closed... yuck. I was just outside now and it has definitely cooled off here in mill bay, this morning/afternoon was warm but the temp. has dropped for sure. Yucky :(

It is OK coming from the Herd Rd side... but coming from Nanaimo, you are screwed apparently. My poor client is having a hek of a time trying to come pick up her dog!
Yucky is right!
