And so the snow
Continues to blow
The wind
It's driving force

The hills, once brown with sand 
Took on a new face today
White until the barest rocks
Almost did not exhist

Then the sun did come out
The temp twenty at it's height
Nothing happened all was still
The mountain cold and white

Ten days went by, the Holidays passed
All was beautyful to behold
Ten inches of snow but it took help
Before I got to go

My readings done 
My groceries bought
I breathed a sigh
And went back home

That night on the TV
The weather man did grin
Ducked his head, cleared his throat
And then he did begin

"An arctic front is coming in
Lots of snow and dangerous wind"
And so I ordered more propane, gritted my teeth
 "Here we go again"

The build up of snow like last time
This time never came
The snow did come but before it built
The wind had then stepped in

The number of inches was hard to guess
But the drifts began to grow,
I watched the ghosts swirl and sway
And dance among the rocks all day

Day one, day two, the beginning of three
The sun does have a scheen
And as like the day before
It's the wind predicts the scene

As the sun begins to think of rest
It high lights the bare ridges
And the shadows of the drifts
Has not the ghosts hidden

I went to Church today
And had ease of mind
I no longer feared the ice and snow
I just sprinkled salt where I wanted to go

    Superb. Originally from Iowa, I easily relate. The imagery brought back fond memories of childhood and memories I would as soon forget...those of shoveling all that snow. Well don, a great write.

    Marycile, Snow storms can be devastating... I assume that you had plenty of salt on hand. Isn't that amazing how salt melts ice.... I enjoyed your write. It has inspired me. Smiles, Dane Ann

    We have had not a day above 20 since the first of the new year. But........they say it will get above freezing. So I guess some of our snow will melt. Thank you for the wonderful read today. Love, Carol
