It was a windchill of about -2, but I NEEDED some coffee! We had just suffered through a major coffee catastrophe and the coffee that was left was in-consumable.
So I packed up the kids, bundled em up so tight they could barely breathe and we made our way to Caribou.
As we drive off into the rising sun we notice a rainbow in the sky. Would you believe it? A rainbow without any rain? SO COOL! The kids and I freaked for at least a minute. Then Marissa announces that a rainbow is a promise from God to never flood the whole earth again.
I thought...I wonder if that rainbow is to remind me or Himself of this promise? These thoughts eat up my head for a majority of the day.
Matt gets home and over dinner the kids exclaim the excitement of the morning and seeing the rainbow in the sky.
"Was it a line strait up?" He asks.
"Well it was like the ends of the rainbow both on the sides of the sun" I reply.
"Oh, that's a sun dog!" He exclaims.
And there, in that moment my fairy tale day dreams of a magical and miraculous image in the sky were nailed to reality. The many thoughts that were stressing me out in one minute and bringing me great reverence the next were quickly scientifically summed up.
Sun dogs people....rainbows in MN skies because it is so ridiculously cold here that we don't need rain.
