Keeping Busy

I thought it was supposed to be April showers that bring May flowers?  So why is May so showery this year?  This week has been one giant sprinkling, keeping the ground just a little too wet to sit on and the air just a little too chilly to go out without jackets.  Really, Springtime?  Aren't you supposed to be in full effect by now?
