A Cold Blanket


How often have we heard the expression, “A blanket of snow”? But how warm is this blanket? NOT VERY!

A chilly blanket settles down

On every surface in the town.

The hills and valley shiver too,

Of drivers there are just a few.

Daring shoppers venture out

Their cars and trucks slide all about.

We’ll just get used to all this snow

And then the rain will make it go.


The sun is doing its best to warm up the ice blanket but I think it won’t be successful today. More snow is coming before the usual rain is back.

  2. Gorgeous shot of that sun peeking. We FINALLY saw the sun today (as I type this it decides to hide behind a cloud, sigh), but because of your Canadian air blowing this way, it’s not supposed to get above 25 degrees Fahrenheit (-4 Celsius).
