Uh, Oh....

Our snow is almost completely melted:  little pockets still hide on the north side of trees and buildings.  Yesterday we had some nice steady rain, which will certainly help green things up!  However, the dugout is just barely half full, which is not a good thing.  The dugout is our summer 'insurance policy' if Mother Nature decides to be stingey with rain in the summer.  At this time of year, after the snow melt, it should be full to the brim and even over-flowing.  In the picture, water shold be covering the patch of snow on the left.  Now, this is Manitoba, and we could still get a foot of snow - but even that won't fill the dugout.  We had much less snow than normal this year, apparently statistically, we've had low percipitation every month since the Fall!  It's not a great way to start the growing season!
