Yes, it has. I can’t go outside and ride my bike. We can’t practice on our school’s dirt track. We had to run track practice inside or in the parking lot. Yes. There’s nothing to do in Lodi already, but I play soccer and we had to cancel some games. No, it hasn’t. I had friends sleep over and I go to the movies. And I walked across town in the rain, anyway. Yes, it kept me inside. I couldn’t go out and do any gardening or walking. No, I’m still watering my plants anyway. I love to water!

    At this time of year outdoor plans should always be subject to the accuracy of our weather forecasters, who by the way do a pretty amazing job. What's particularly nice about this area of the country, once June arrives there is hardly ever the need to even check the forecast until around late September. Being originally from the northeast I still don't take our incredible weather for granted.

    I had to cancel three baseball practices because of the rain. But it didn't stop me from taking the motorcycle safety course to get my license. Nothing like learning to ride in the worst weather to feel great rifing in the best, like today.

    (My apologies for anyone i may have stalled out in front of).
