winter's rain freezes

winter's rain freezes ice coats tall southern pine trees... pow trees snap like twigs
A memory from the winter of 1963/64 I was due with our first child..There was rain then snow then ice..It melted enough just in time for me to get to the hospital..

oh, sara, this exactly what I was writing about in my winter halibun for Debs. This happened at my in-law's place in kentucky, the ice encased trees. Wow what an event to remember with the birth of your baby.
