We just got done with about 6 days of rain, just past the end of the holiday weekend.

I hope someone had a nice barbeque !

Not only did the holiday weekend suck weather wise, it continues to suck and looks like it is going to suck for the foreseeable future. Rain and clouds everyday now, high temps in the 60s but mostly in the 50s. My garden is nothing but mud and weeds.Very depressing after the worst winter in recent memory.

I took my girls, two and four to a beach in New Hampshire on Sunday and amazingly did not get rained on and even though it was to cold for swimming the girls had a blast in the sand.

Then to a nice hotel where we could take them swimming.

They did not even notice the unbelievably lousy weather, that made my wife and I forget about it too.

No chance for a BBQ, but some Maine lobster made up for it.

Now if only I could keep that good attitude when I am standing in 12" of mud doing site work in the mud pit of a construction site I have been working on.

Bill/Walrus:
Send some of your weather down here to SE Texas! I worked an EMS call on Memorial Day where a guy dislocated his ankle when he stepped into a large crack in the ground. Almost did the same thing myself while moving him to the ambulance.

The BBQ tasted even better after I got back home from the call...

I'm glad to hear that some people had a dry day.

iwire,

I know what the mud's about up there, I've got Family up in NH for the past 15 yrs or so. They're in New Ipswich & Wilton. Where was the Beach that you went to?

7:30 Saturday night we get the call. A 6000HP motor has burned up at an aluminum rolling mill. We had it replaced and running at 5:30 Monday. Can you guess how my weekend was spent?

No barbecue, but they did buy us pizza
