My Guest Blogger Makes an Easter Appearance

Last month, I had featured something called Guest Post Saturday.

Seeing as it is Saturday once again, my Guest Blogger is being featured for a special post. We hope you enjoy it.

*SHIVER*



It is dark...

The sky is partly cloudy....the odd star peeks through the clouds...

It is cold...the temperature is well below freezing...

Light snow is falling...in spite of the broken cloud cover it never stops...

An uncertain wind shifts around from all directions...blowing the snow into little April drifts on the ground...

My hair is stiff with snow, frozen into odd spiky tufts that crunch when I run my hand through it...

We've been out here for hours, hardly moving...it's about one o'clock in the morning...

The forest around us is quiet, no other sound except what the four of us are making ourselves...

My exposed skin feels cold as death...how much longer can we take this?...

I reach for the container and take a short drink from it...it's a wonder it hasn't frozen already as there's a crust of ice around the top...

We wait....

...

...

...

...

...

...

...

Finally, as two of us are falling asleep, one of us can't take it anymore....

"I don't think I can stay out here any longer", says Norm, to my left.

"I don't think I can either", I reply.

"Can you bring in some of the beer bottles?, he asks.

"Sure, no problem" I say.

I climb out of the 104degF hot tub and scramble into my sandals and a towel and make for the house as the snow overflows onto my feet. "Dammit, it's cold", I say to myself, "but I wouldn't have missed this for the world!". Too bad you can only stay in a hot tub for just so long...indoors or out.

Life is good.

Happy Easter everyone!

I love sitting in a hot tub when the snow is falling. Man against nature or something :)
