Rainbow Adventure

To our great surprise in the late
afternoon the sun appeared opposite
a very deep blue sky, lighting the distant
trees with magic light!

As we changed course, a rainbow began to appear
across the entire sky.

I jumped out of the car with my camera
and stood on a snow bank at the edge
of the road when to my dismay my right leg
sunk right down through the snow.
It looks as though
I'm sitting in the snow but actually I am standing
on my right leg that has disappeared and I am
My husband was trying to take a
photo of me looking at the rainbow and kept
telling me to stand not realizing I couldn't get up!

He started to move towards me and then his leg went
through the snow and disappeared like mine.
So there we both were with cars going by and I was concerned
our other legs would have the same fate.

I managed to pull my right leg out
but my shoe remained at
the bottom of the hole.

D had to crouch and reach down all the way up to
his shoulder to retrieve it!

All was well and the rainbow was so amazing!

The pictures are magical! I too fell through the snow as you did just this past January while sledding...I couldn't believe how difficult it was to get out. Your blog is just what I needed to see today. We are moving out to our new home today (same town). Exciting and bittersweet at the same time.

I just read your rainbow story Nan. Thank goodness D was with you, although I guess you would have made it out of the snow anyway. But the pictures of the rainbow with the light hitting the tops of the trees are beautiful!
