The Blizzards of ’10

With 49 of our 50 states wearing snow on the ground at one time this month, I had to create a rhyme to go with all the snow in my own neighborhood. The black & whites are actually the result of the day we had no sun, while the “colored” ones are the next day after the blizzard when the sun shone brightly!  Again, see it’s beauty as joyful, not a nuisance, and it won’t seem so awful. Just walk and drive safely!

 

 

 

STORMY WEATHER

The winter storms of 2010 will now go down in history
Why we had so much snow is still something of a mystery.



The change in climate is quite bizarre;
Global warming or the result of a quasar?*


 

The stark white landscape has a special “hold”–
No bright colors, yet the statement’s bold!

 

 

Snow-laden trees & desert-like dunes
cover the ground like silent tunes.


 

EnJOY the snow with all its beauty.
Gather it up, for it’s winter’s booty!


*QUASAR- A term in astronomy defined as a massive & extremely remote celestial,object, emitting exceptionally large amounts of energy, and typically having a starlike image in a telescope. Source: The New Oxford American Dictionary

  1. Yes, but it did cause destruction. My daughter lost the tops (how many feet I don’t know) of
    40 feet pear trees – 30 of them. Power was out. A man was killed in Central Park by a fallen
    branch. It reminds me of winters of old. This is the most snow in New York City for February in recorded NYC history.
