Today the rains came sweeping across our town and the great city of Toronto to the south. Highways were flooded, rivers swelled, we went out to the library. Things here in town were fine only fleetingly touched by chaos. I think we will go searching for puddles tomorrow. Tonight when the rain had calmed a little Buzz took to the curbside to do a little puddle dancing.
Before the rains came today Buzz had a chance to play outside, painting polka dots and swirls with a little chalk paint (cornstarch, food colouring, and water). This is an extremely messy activity, but so much fun, I like to get in on the painting as well.
Hopefully those caught in the flooding waters this afternoon are climbing into warm and dry beds tonight. We are certainly thankful for ours.
