The wind is whipping, so the sleet’s
Like needles on your face.
Your feet are slipping on the sheets
Of ice formed everyplace.

The cars are skidding on the roads
That haven’t gotten salt.
It’s so forbidding, each abode’s
Prepared for an assault.

The people shopping in the stores
Buy everything in sight;
Though some are stopping doing chores
That they don’t need tonight.

The blizzard’s blowing as they said,
A fierce, ferocious storm.
So I’m not going out; instead,
I’ll watch from in the warm.

    I am so glad that we haven't gotten too much snow so far here in Oklahoma. It has been in the mid 50's for most of this winter. I hope I am not speaking too soon :) I don't like the snow and ice either. Snow is pretty to look at but try driving in it. Yuk is right. Great poem, Ilene!
