Rainbow please!

Seriously - it has been raining for at least 40 days and 40 nights. It's been raining for so long, that I can't remember a time when it wasn't raining - other than last year.

These are photos from Canada Day yesterday. Festivities and fireworks were cancelled.

We are flooding. Well, our town is on a mountain... but everything in the valley bottom is flooding. Our lake is at a 45 yr high.

Our soccer fields, parking lots, parks etc. are flooded.

My backyard has a creek running through it. A muddy creek.

Water sprays up out of our manhole covers on the streets.

My plants are all waterlogged and dying - but my weeds are thriving, and given the fact that it never quits raining, there has been no weeding accomplished. 

See all these dang weeds? I'm simply going to excavate the whole darn thing, and start from scratch. These weeds I have been battling from the time we moved in. They were quite established, and now they have won the war.

Despite the rain, we did celebrate Canada Day at friend's house playing games. We also got news that our documents landed in Kenya and were out for delivery. Yay! But wait... not so quick.

This am, the tracking number informed me that our documents were not delivered. Fedex has opened an investigation.

Just when you think you are up, you get slammed down. This is just beyond ridiculous now.

The docs have to be submitted to the Kenyan governing body by Thursday, but they have to be delivered first!, then prepared by our Kenyan agency and then couriered.

Will there ever be a rainbow at the end of this storm?
