Spring rain puts a damper on business
Greece, N.Y. -- The Rochester area's wet weather has become a nuisance for some, including those involved with the Greece Little League.
Gene Noga, league president, said he has already struck out three times this season, having to cancel opening day three times already. Pushed back another week now, Noga said more than 600 kids are ready to take the field.
"It is disappointing, there is no question about that," he said. "We're just going to wait for better days and have fun at that point in time. The kids just want to get outside and play ball."
But the field is muddy mess. The grass is so wet, lawn mowers sink into the mushy ground. Noga said they won't be able to cut the grass for another week or two.
Manager at Clover Lawn & Landscaping, Douglas Lechner, manager at Clover Lawn & Landscape in Brighton, said April is usually a busy time of year. Spring sales took off when the weather warmed up, but that only lasted a few days.
The little league and the landscaping company said they hope to catch up and be able to make up for the cancelled games and jobs lost. They're just going to have to wait until the end of the season to see what the weather will allow them to squeeze in.
