Winter or Spring? Day 13 #SOL18

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.

  1. I read a meme or something the other day that winter was behaving like an angry spouse this year, storming out only to turn back and say, “And another thing!…” and then proceed to harangue you again. Seems about right this year! I enjoyed hearing your inner monologue. Hoping spring makes it way to you soon!

  2. Then you have a really good sense of smell!!!! I loved being a part of your inner dialogue. Stay warm today!

  3. I am amazed looking from afar at the snowstorms on the news; I can only imagine how frustrating it is to be living in them! I hope you get some relief soon; sending thoughts of Texas sunshine your way!
