    We were thinking we might try camping here later this summer if we could get a spot. I suspect we will need to wait until next year, although I think we're in for more of this sort of situation in the future. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/lond...Y71PlsOIVNIEGuEayC7-vey1OI8V3N2Z9ih557uvqzVfI

    It's been a very wet spring, so the ground is completely saturated. Summer has had rain, but not quite as much as this spring; however, any rain that falls, is on saturated ground. The lakes, Erie and Ontario, are also at very high levels. It all adds up to flooding where there didn't used to be much flooding in the past.
    I feel bad for people that had plans to stay at these parks and have their reservations canceled.

    Yet if you travel just a couple North of Toronto.. There hasn't been rain for a good month.. nope correct that it did rain June 29th for about 15 minutes.. Now the entire cottage county area that was flooded in the spring is now under an almost 100% fire ban..

    So don't blink or you'd miss it kind of rain. Not good.
    Watching what's happening in the Gulf/New Orleans area this weekend and whether or not it heads far enough north to affect us. We seem to be a sweet spot here in WNY and quite few of the storms go either north or south of us; so we may have clouds, but no precipitation.
