SALISBURY, Md.- The rainy weather has not provided much of a break for people trying to get outside and do outdoor activities. The rain over the past few weeks has even kept some people from shopping to get their spring gardens planted.
Nancy Belfski said it has not been a good start to the season for planting.
"It affects shopping for them because when it's raining, raining, raining you can't get them (plants) into the ground; and really they need some sunshine to keep growing," Belfski said.
Nancy said if it was not for all the wet weather she would have started garden shopping sooner.
"I would probably have started a couple of weeks ago, but it was so cold and wet and wouldn't stop raining, so I didn't feel like going out when it's like that," Belfski said.
Dr. Walter Gianelle of Your Doc's In in Salisbury said constant rain and dreary weather can affect your mood.
"I think there's definitely is some correlation between weather that's cloudy and rainy," he said. "It forces the individual to stay inside [and] that leads to some situational depression."
John Cassese said he's looking forward to brighter days and sunshine so he can get outdoors to start working on his patio deck.
"I hope it gets better that's for sure; the rain has put everything off," he said.
Wet playgrounds and equipment kept kids inside for the most part at Bundles of Joy Learning Center; but they were happy to take advantage of a little playtime outside while the rain took a break Thursday.
Center director, Susan Worthen said, "The kids are always looking to get outdoors, and we try to get them out whenever we can."
