... the world's largest game of "Red Light/
Green Light" outside: frozen in the "stop"
position. Ice has stalled everything in its
tracks. Sidewalks are a skater's dream:
even if one doesn't know how, they will
learn or fall, trying. And forget the roads:
cars going everywhichaway but straight:
drivers think they know how to drive on
ice. They forget: ice drives them unless
one has a Zamboni. It's slick as a whistle
out there: the weather ain't fit for man or
beast. Best to stay in on days like this ...

|"slip slidin away", fog and ice, two of the most challenging conditions for drivers, and walkers to contend with -- your photograph does a masterful job of showing the sheet of glass effect of the ice, Karla -- a Zamboni, I never thought of having one for the icy roads -- it is a terrific idea -- may peace and love be always with you -- JMW|

|Ice storms are amazing! The beauty and destruction they bring... Your write made me smile as I remembered similar days when we lived in Missouri. Stay warm...

|Brrrrrrrr! Up until today we've had some nice weather here in Florida, but the storm is here now, raining, raining, raining...
We started out at 70 degrees and are expecting freezing by morn...
Dull and gloom
have set over my head,
and the sky was RED this morning!
As I walked the dog, I saw a rainbow...no sun, no rain...just a rainbow in a red sky...
Gave me the willies, it did!
Gosh! You two be careful and for Gosh sakes, stay INSIDE!
Love your pen!
Love and Peace~

|"ice drives them..." loved it! Now that same storm is here, and the town never plows or salts our road, so there you go--if you aren't careful. ;)|

|sounds like a good time to stay in-be careful and stay warm!|

|You describe the icy conditions beautifully. I tried driving on icy streets once and nearly scared myself to death. Never again. If I lived where it gets that cold, I'm afraid I'd become homebound until the "thaw".|

Too clever, Karla; love the imagery/word choice you used; very well done! BRAVA!
And I like the part about driving on ice: you can't. LOL Trust me! LOL The ice drives you!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D
Glad we're staying put; don't need us bustin' our butts out there, especially with our backs, wound up as they are! *OW*
