Default Noses and Lawn: Everything is Soggy

Both my infants have mild colds and are fussy. One of them keeps curling up on the floor and the other won't sleep at all and screams with rage about it. I had one out for three days with this but now we're just all miserable together. They don't have fevers; just clear runny noses, occasional coughs, and foul moods.

We're also on our third consecutive year of recordbreaking rainfall in the Tennessee Valley, and it's wet and miserable outside as well as inside. The storm drains are so full that my sewer line has nowhere to flow to . . . again . . . so, once again, the seal is breaking beneath my daycare space's toilet, because that's the lowest fixture on the property. BLECH. I have spent over ten thousand dollars on rainwater mitigation in the last three years. With just two enrolled kids while I wait for SOMEBODY to need toddler care, I've started having to tap my mom when we have big expenses. I'm just grateful that she's come into enough money that I can tap her.

Anyhoo, from 0 to 100%, how many of your kids are under the weather right now? How bad is the weather, while you're at it? I think I see Charlton Heston at the edge of my property, waving a staff and yelling something about the Lord of Hosts doing battle for us.

I should knock on wood before saying this but right now not a single one of my 9 is sick! (Knock, knock!) Now, at the end of January flu, strep, and a tummy bug raged through and I had to close for 2 days because I got flu and felt like death.
Not too much rain and barely any snow so far but tonight we’re supposed to get some nastiness so we’ll see...

We were hit pretty hard last week with flu, sinus infections and bronchitis, but are doing pretty well this week. The flooding has been harsh.

We need to get outside, but all the creeks and rivers are still out of their banks and the playground is 3 inches underwater. We were issued another flash flood warning today.

We are going a bit stir crazy.

Upstate NY here, we have a winter weather advisory tonight and tomorrow 3-5 inches of snow. Pretty standard for February. When it melts we get to look out onto the sloppiness that is mud. All my dck's are sick with colds. My own kids had influenza B a couple weeks ago. I always think, wow this is so much sickness, but honestly it is really the same sh*t different year. It's always a lot of illness this time of year no matter the year.

In Tennessee, too, and yes, the rainfall is crazy! School is out here today AGAIN! The past few weeks have been horrible. Even had three tornadoes in the last two weeks.

MN here as well. Winter has been a snowy but very mild one in my area. We have much more snow than usual but thank goodness we haven't had the sub-zero arctic temps we normally have. With the exception of today of course, -29F with windchills about -45F.

But all in all a fairly nice winter.

As far as illness goes, I am lucky too as there seems to be some type of gastrointestinal bug going around. Puking and/or diarrhea. Thankfully, I haven't had it here yet. There are other daycare's and schools here that have had entire classrooms effected.

The only thing I am stressing about is Spring.... with the amount of snow we've had, it's gonna be a wet, muddy Spring.

Sorry to hear about the wet/soggy environment you dealing with Pestle.....it sounds exhausting and stressful!
