Lawn sports

Last month, we had over twice the amount of our average rainfall. We are already one-third of the way through August and two-thirds of the way towards reaching this month's average rainfall.

Mushrooms sprout in the wet lawn. Everywhere and all the time. We mow them down and more pop up. It's a round robin game that has us racing to keep up.

With all this rain, it's difficult to find good weather for other lawn sports. We've had to perfect our badminton blocks, lifts, and drives by watching the Olympics. But some clearing of the clouds is predicted for the next few days. Smashing!
