The first snowfall of the season has dusted the tops of our local hills at last. This year it’s a welcome sight, not only for the skiers, but for the townspeople who have been under a “Boil Water Advisory” off and on for weeks, due to the heavy rainfall and flooding.
The sun even came out for a few minutes to highlight the cool hilltops.
With all the rain that’s fallen here,
We ducks don’t cry, but rather cheer.
But as the chill turns rain to snow,
We start to wonder where to go.
Maybe we will be in luck
And fields won’t turn to frozen muck.
The corn and grain in farmers’ fields
Is filling for the strength it yields
But if it freezes, in our strife
We’ll have to eat aquatic life.
