It's snowing now
as I write this note.
Little temporal curtains of snow
like pages of paper which
materialize and disappear
into a thousand pixels
They go by along with
the snow showers,
almost horizontal at times,
puffs and pulses,
between the two tenements
little swirls of white.
dancing and falling
to the white below,
accumulating white
where the yard was yesterday
because of the lack of snow
this strange winter
a winter with the first snow
a Valentine's Day Nor' Easter
with snow and sleet, and freezing rain
along the coast
It's snowing still, five hours
since the starting lines of the poem
Cold snow, all silent and white

- Raymond A. Foss, "It's Snowing Now"

Life is like a blanket too short. You pull it up and your toes rebel, you yank it down and shivers meander about your shoulder; but cheerful folks manage to draw their knees up and pass a very comfortable night.

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.

- J.R.R. Tolkien, "Roads Go Ever On"

Whenever it's just snow, you're usually OK if you drive slow. But anytime you add sleet or freezing rain into the mix, traction on your car goes to bust. It takes a lot longer to stop, and that's when we run into problems.

I guess I made friends with people who were not too much the party type. But I was never the type of person who would like to party too much. I never felt the urge to do that, I much prefer going downtown for a dinner or a movie. So it didn't matter whether I was younger.
