-->Music: Cold as Ice


Rain, freezing rain, sleet, ice, snow, OH NO!!!
We’ve done this already this winter.
My blood is way too thin for this, not thick at all.
When I go out, I look like the Michelin Man
Or very young children with Southern mothers
Can barely move for all the clothing layers
Single digit temps are more than this Southern Belle can take!
Frigid, frosty, glacial, trying to drive is scary!
Cold, arctic, bitter, all these make me long for Southern Climes.
I want to crawl in my bed and stay,
wrapped in blankets, sheets, and quilts
With nary a single inch of me showing out.
But off to work in the snow I must go.
The turnpike never really closes
Silly people trying to get somewhere that is most likely closed

I'm with Dan...I just look out and say "That's pretty," and go back to sleep, cozy, all alone, in my king size bed.

We had two inches of snow fall this morning in a matter of an hour then about three hours later the sun was shining and melted everything! Mother nature is sure teasing us this year.
Hope it gets warmer for your Southern bones...Lovely poetry, sure have missed you Ann.
Peace, love, and light,

The wonderful thing about retirement is that when you wake up in the morning, look out the window, see the snow, rain, sleet, ice and all that crap... all you have to do is go back to bed. Do drive carefully.
