It Is Snowing…

The second “real” snowstorm of the Winter season began its work Sunday evening and continued through Monday morning, with village and state snowplows and local snow jockeys with their own plowing blades appearing in every neighborhood of our little city.

And it snowed, and trucks kept trucking;

and geese kept flying southwesterly;

and work crews kept crewing;

and pups kept asking, “Go where?”;

until it stopped with Winter white trees sparkling through, and a big Winter statement ended, once again;

and clean-up continued.

Winter Wonderland…Before Thanksgiving

Winter Wonderful has made Winter Wonderlands of a good part of the nation in the last week, and The Weather Channel says it’s just getting started. Oh, my!

Here’s a look from Northwest Ohio:

Whoa! Is that a big ol’ snowplow truck slithering around the corner?!

Blue skies emerged at last, but the next storm is on its way!

Really…Lake Effect Snow Already?

Oh, my! Snowflakes and plows and double-takes! Oh, my… it’s the season’s first Winter snow — but it’s still FALL!

It started last night,
hinted at morning’s plight.

This morning’s blowing,
quickly got us knowing
It wouldn’t stop soon,
not even by noon!

It brought us to attention,
early Winter’s gloomy mention.

The bridge was fine,
but sitting was undermined.

Trees bent very low
and branches were so.

Birds said emphatically “no”;
headed off to otherwise know
a place of sunset’s glow.
