We had two long wet days travelling from Ontario to Winnipeg.  We took the route south of Lake Superior and ran straight into torrential rains.

On Wednesday we had dinner with old friends in Winnipeg and moved on this morning to Regina.  The flooding in Manitoba and eastern Saskatchewan is unbelievable.  The rivers were stretching way beyond their shores and because Manitoba is so flat, even between the rivers the fields are like lakes.  We only saw one dry field in crop in 4 hours of driving so this is going to be a bad year for the farmers.

In Saskatchewan the trans canada highway was flooded East of Regina so we had to take a one hour detour through Melville.  Fortunately the day was lovely with the blue skies and puffy clouds that I remember from the prairies.
