Rain, rain, go away, come again another day!

I know spring is known for rain, but with the late snowstorm and now all this rain, spring sports are getting hit hard. Practices are being canceled or forced indoors and games and meets are being postponed. Come on sunshine, I am ready to watch some baseball!
