where creative minds can interact

Yesterday I watched Weatherman Jim Kosek in Baltimore:

Here was his rant:

Oh boy

14 to 22 inches of snow

Oh boy

Paralyzing, crippling, record breaking snow

Road closures, power outages, black ice ,flight cancellations

He had a meltdown( of course the snow didn't melt :-)

So as a cathartic exercise in my Febrruary writing project, I wrote this son/poem about how snow predictions have changed

Blowing and Drifting

Blowing and drifting

Drifting and blowing

The white stuff is falling

Yes, it is snowing

When I was a young girl

And heard it would snow

I put my sled by the front door

But the flakes didn’t show

The weatherman told us

And I had prayed he was right

I had visions of snowflakes

Hoped they’d pile up that night

I threw open the curtains to see the snow

But there was nary a flurry

Seems the major storm passed us by

With a frown, off to school in a hurry

Blowing and drifting

Drifting and blowing

The white stuff is falling

Yes, it is snowing

When I got started skiing

I prayed for a storm

I envisioned a ski lodge

All toasty and warm

I looked out the window

Called the weatherman a jerk

There would be no snow day

So I went off to work

Blowing and drifting

Drifting and blowing

The white stuff is falling

Yes, it is snowing

Now they predict accurately

When and where snow will land

18 to 22 inches they say,

A blizzard warning is at hand

I shovel on Sunday, but more falls on Monday

When will this misery end?

We get a break for a day or two

Then the snow starts falling again

Blowing and drifting

Drifting and blowing

The white stuff is falling

Yes, it is snowing…..again
