...Uphold me with thy free spirit.. Psalms 51: 11

Oh yellow balloon
Tell me please
Will spring come soon
Or will you crash...
In snow to freeze
without making a splash?
Poetry by me AJP

I bought this yellow balloon entitled "Making a Splash" in town today and my first plan was to stand it atop our highest snow bank. However, it wanted to roll downhill into the mud on the road where the snow had been melting, so I crawled up on top giving myself 10 seconds before the self timer went off and held the balloon hoping I didn't slide down to the bottom to make a big splash in the mud puddle:) We are predicted to get another storm for tomorrow with rain, sleet and snow and then there will be a second snow storm even worse on the heels of the last.

    Oh no, not more rain, sleet and snow coming tomorrow!!! Sure glad that you did not take another fall trying to make it to the top of the snow bank in 10 seconds of time. This is an excellent entry to the theme : )
