I’ve stopped writing.
Wait, that is untrue.
I am still having all of the thoughts and most of the ponders, but not so many things screaming in a ‘solid’ form that seem to express a need to be blazoned upon a page. And, my computer is and has been in the shop again.
I popped on this morning to say that yesterday, before the end of October, it snowed. It snowed angels having pillow-fights snow. Giant and cascading flakes that pour down as if God were busy looking at us all on the inside of His snow-globe. It snowed for six hours. Continuously. The weather station called it a Winter Storm. I am ever so glad that at most it accumulated about an inch or two, with the warm ground compacting the snow into a slush with a sugar coated fluffy snow covering. The weather station stated that on the snow board they measured about 6 inches! The snow board doesn’t have Mother Nature’s Autumn Blanket of Heat, the one that continues to encourage barefoot walking on 60 degree days, upon sun warmed grass. I am to have another chance at this temptation and giving in later this week. Upper 50’s and 60’s are forecasted! Less than half of the trees here are still dressed in green. I wonder if they will still turn brilliant and giggling colors and tell their last stories on the breeze before it is time for them to take a nap.
One thought on “Oh My Goodness!!!!”
You guys got snow before we did! (We just had our first hard frost two nights ago.) Kiah called to say it was snowing in NYC yesterday and their heat is broken and the landlord is away for the weekend. But today she said she isn’t even cold, go figure.
Isn’t it odd when we think we have nothing to say and then start writing epics? I love the way you described your winter snow storm. You have me–almost–wishin’ for some of the White Stuff.
