Wet weather puts a damper on a lot of things
A rainy June continued through the weekend and into Monday for many parts of Saskatchewan and it's having an effect on all sorts of outdoor activities.
Baseball, for one, has been stalled as most diamonds are just too wet to allow anyone on them.
"The ground is so saturated right now, there's just no place for the water to go," Armand Jeannot, of the Regina Minor Softball League told CBC News Monday. "If there's standing water on it, it's probably meaning we're going to have to cancel the game."
Businesses that operate in the summer months are also affected by the weather.
Roofers are facing tough times because of the limited number of days they've had for jobs.
"The biggest challenge for me is not being able to feed my family cause you can't get anything done," Kyle McKee, of Dynamic Roofing, said. "You know time is money and when it's raining everyday, you can't work."
McKee said when the weather is good, work crews face long days to keep up with contracts.
For some charitable organizations, like the Canadian Cancer Society, wet weather led to the cancellation of a major fundraising event. The Relay for Life, scrubbed due to rain, could not be rescheduled.
Officials at Environment Canada said that Regina has already exceeded its average rainfall amount, for the entire month of a typical June.
And that was as of Friday, before the weekend and Monday downpours.
