Park your ark (but just for now)

After what feels like 40 days and nights of rain, the clouds have parted briefly. The sun is peeking out, and the roads look almost completely dry. Alas, I was about to be lulled into a false sense of dryness, but when I stepped onto our back lawn, it audibly squelched.

To produce a splashing, squishing, or sucking sound, as when walking through ooze.

The rain is due to start back up in 4 days.
