The Highs and Lows

Monday
and
Tuesday
we had
record highs
of
100
and 104,
respectively.

Yesterday
and today,
our highs
are in the
low 60's.

It's dramatic
changes
like this
that make
us Minnesota
tough
as well as Minnesota
nice.

We have
learned
that
patience
really is a virtue.

The payoff,
if we
are lucky,
might come in
like this:

I feel like
a proud
momma
this morning.
I've been waiting for this
poppy to bloom
for three years.

It was
definitely worth
the wait.
