Another winters day...............

I wrote this in December 2012 but it could have been today. We are in the midst of a blizzard. The mall has closed and the police say to stay off the roads. Gabby is coming here tonight instead of trying to get home. This has been a doozy of a winter so far. Even the Bay is freezing and its not done that in awhile. My friend took this picture on her way home this evening. She was making tracks on this road almost. The plows can not keep up with the work and are doing the best they can. Some storms one can not this weekend its snuggle up in the house and make the most of the peace and quiet. Tristen is at his aunties and will go sledding tomorrow. Maybe.......

The blue skies are turning grey
Just another winters day
A north wind begins to blow
Soon the sky looks heavy with snow
Fluffy pillows of white fall down
Slow at first making no sound
The wind picks up and starts to whine
Sending icicles along his spine.
The snow now comes in crazy swirls
As the true storm now unfurls.
Winds like a banshee shrieks
Snow on snow forming high peaks.
It blows and drifts across the fields,
To this storm everything yields.
Roads are closed and trees are down
As all the lights go off in town.
Man drifts back one hundred years
Storms like this he always fears.
Nature still has the upper hand.
Man will never understand.
He huddles down inside his bed
and pulls the covers over his head.
As the storm rages on all night
Man will cringe and quiver with fright.
The angry blast will eventually cease.
Time to clean up piece by piece.
Now to see what damage's done
All becomes clear with the rising sun.
Just another winters day
and this storm goes on its way.
