Depending on your point of view, the weather here is perfect for today’s holiday. January 11 is National Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day. Not only is our snow melting into nasty slush puddles, it’s supposed to rain off and on all day long!
Actually, I think puddle jumping is much more fun in a nice summer shower, when the cool water actually feels good, but apparently someone decided to celebrate puddles in the middle of winter instead. I hope your friends are in on it too, or this holiday will make you a lot of enemies!
“Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime;
it is the Lord who makes the storm clouds.
He gives showers of rain to men,
and plants of the field to everyone.”
