The Springtime Muck of Lake Erie West

(Toledo, OH) Several days of almost continuous rainfall have saturated the ground in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, and the result is millions of acres of standing water and muck. While this region has not been as battered by heavy rains as, say, the states of Missouri or Texas, there has been no shortage of precipitation here, either.

A trip out to the garage necessitates a pair of boots, and the act of letting the dogs outside means several minutes worth of cleaning up the mud that they inevitably track in the house. While the gardener in me appreciates the value of water delivered from the sky, there is a point at which the rain loses its welcome mat or - in more contemporary terms - its memory foam mattress.
