I think our capricious Mother Nature is delaying spring. How about where you are ?
The power was restored just after dark but I was prepared with candles and flashlights. The blizzard winds died down by morning. Now what do we do when snowed in?
We play games, work on puzzles, read, and WRITE (book 6)!THE WRITE PAGEThe weather is the impetus for many poems and this one fit our local weather prognostication, although the prediction changed every hour.
An awful tempest mashed the air,
The clouds were gaunt and few;
A black, as of a specter’s cloak,
Hid heaven and earth from view.
by Emily Dickinson
