The Arctic Express on the way: conditon critical: upgraded to a Winter Storm WARNING, with significant ice accumulations possible.

One twelve:  January falls in its
tracks, right overhead; it needs to
rest a while.  Its mouth hangs
open; frigid breath exhales in an
icy blast; trees bend in sympathy
to its weight; frozen digits gnarl
around the clouds:  Winter hath
returned with a fury, knocking out
any recollection of Spring.

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman.  (1/12)

It has been crazy here too, all my plants have the buds for leaves because we keep swinging back into warm days, but every week, we get more snow and freezing temperatures. I am thinking that it will be a hard winter, and hopefully I am wrong, but it has been colder and more snowy here this year than in the previous 7 I have been here combined. I hope the warm comes up and takes the chill off of you.
Take care,

It turned cold here too Karla. The mountains are full and many roads are requiring chains. A fine write.

BRILLLIANT... But Winter might just have to watch out... Spring could be that old woman-spurned, thing, herself!! :)) Fantastic personifications here. Deliciously sharp and steely in its conciseness, Karla. Time for me to find a snow-hole somewhere... K xx

Good write, K.J.

In Oshawa between the tracks where i live winter flirts but except for three short snow showers hasn't amounted to much.

{Oshawa is 50 klicks esat of Toronto, and 3,600+ klicks east of bc)

tje weather is wild this year

if winter shows up enjoy it

You are getting a taste of "our" current winter conditions, Karla. It's been a strange time. Thank you. Amour et paix, ton ami de la C-B, Canada,

Warning from Toronto: Don't drive if you don't have to, Karla. Weather conditions sounds awful. Out west the situation is pretty bad too. Much snow...three people so far have died...overcome by dismal conditions when they tried to walk for help after encountering car problems. Be wise! Be safe! Chilling write!

God Bless
