2017 — a tough year that will not give up!

2017 is already known as the year of the never ending rain, flooding and delayed planting, some fields never getting planted!
For homeowners, it meant that many basements were flooded that were never wet before. Driveways and roads needed more gravel, eating up money that was planned for other improvements in our county.
Insurance rates did, or will go up to reimburse loses due to increased claims. Crop yields are down even though many farmers applied tonnes of extra fertilizer after much of it that was applied in the spring was leached down below plant roots by the never ending spring rains!
