That's the first sentence of the chapter "Piglet is completely surrounded by water" in Winnie-the-Pooh; and also quite a good summary of the past few days here. It has rained and rained and rained; and still the rain has not quite managed to melt all the snow and ice yet. I've only been out now and then just to check where one is able to walk, or not. Mostly, it has been "or not". My usual shortcuts are still blocked either by snow banks or little lakes.
Going out today, I took my big umbrella which can also be used as a walking stick. It came in handy both ways.
