In the trails
In the hollows
In the ditches
In the shady spots
Out of the sun
In those darkened spots
A glimpse of what was
Just two short weeks ago.
Flat spaces of brown
Dry and sparsely vegetated
Scattered collections of gray and white
Remnants of the great snowstorm of two weeks ago.
Snow in the news.
20 ” shattering records
Collapsing roofs and
A blanket of snow
A fresh new covering
Quickly fades as the danger emerges
For people, animals, and vehicles on the road.

So much snow already. Stay safe and warm.
I think it’s going to be that kind of winter. “Snow dumps” instead of “snowfall” or “small accumulations”!
I had to smile as I read this because we still have some (although small) piles of snow left over from our pre-Thanksgiving storm. Watching the nightly news I can’t believe the weather some states are getting. Stay safe and warm.
Above 40 today so they are melting . . . very unusual to last over two weeks this early – technically not Winter for at least another week. ❤
