Old man winter breathes his cold breath and covers our land with snow. With ferocity, the snow blows across many states and pushes humanity into hiding. With the fierceness of the storm, I’m happy to sit in my office and watch the tree sway and dance with the north wind. In moments of quiet the snow looks almost beautiful but then the wind picks up again and whips it around like a wild fire. Though it hasn’t happened yet, the temperatures are supposed to drop below zero today. My fireplace will help keep the frigid cold at bay.
Somewhere on our street, a mere mortal attempts to slay the winter dragon with a snow blower to clear the deposits of old man winter. The north wind laughs at his foolishness for he will just blow more snow to replace that shifted away.
On days like this I’m grateful I don’t need to go out. I can sit in my cozy office with the furnace blowing hot air on my legs. I can wander to the fireplace and enjoy the flickering, fiery flames dancing in defiance of the north wind.
Hopefully once this all blows out, no one will be seriously hurt and winter will calm to the less ferocious state it normally employs.
