A St. Patricks Day Parade!

Today I woke up a bit worried.  There was a skiff of snow on the ground, fog hung in the air, and dark clouds loomed above.  Not perfect weather if you are planning on dancing in the Saint Patrick's Day Parade! 

By the time I reached downtown, the skies threatened to open up with a down pour!  Come on Saint Patrick!  Seriously!

Paprika and Cinnamon began to warm up and so did the wind.  This was not in the plans!  It was already cold and with the nasty clouds forming it didn't look promising.  Is it too much to ask for a little sunshine?  At least could the rain hold off for a bit?

He must have heard me.  I am sure he did, because as they rounded the corner, the sun broke through the clouds.

Celtic music filled the air amidst cheers and applause as the Haran Irish Dancers made their way down the street, dancing their hearts out! 

It was great!  No rain.  No puddles to dance through.  No dresses splattered with mud.  It was perfect really.  Thank you Saint Patrick for pulling out all the stops!

As I wrote this post, the wind picked up the rain has begun, but I am so glad it waited!  So, very glad!  An Irish blessing for sure.  May you all enjoy a wonderful weekend and a blessed Saint Patrick's Day!
