Today is day 13 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
Winter or Spring?
And tomorrow’s snow totals will likely be 12 or more inches in the city with more to the south.
Wait – did I hear that right? Is this weatherman for real? Twelve inches or more? Are you serious? Again? When will this end? Another snow day? I have so much to do to prepare for the possibility of no school.
Oh my – what is that truck ahead? It looks like a truckload of brand new snowblowers. It is! Talk about adding insult to injury. The sales tags are flapping in the breeze, laughing at me, like tongues wagging and teasing me about this upcoming nor’easter. I can’t believe this! They’ll probably sell right off before being loaded off the truck with this weather forecast. But who needs a snowblower this time of year?
When will it be spring? 12 inches? Or more? REALLY? Can’t winter be over already? It IS March 12th isn’t it? I just want spring! UNCLE!
Wait… what is that? No – it can’t be? Really? Let me look again. Am I seeing things? Oh boy I was wrong. It’s not a truck of snowblowers, it’s a truck of lawn mowers! My first sign of spring!
Despite the foot of snow expected there MIGHT be hope that spring is on the way! I think I smell fresh-mown grass.
