To the New Year

Greetings Friends!

I cannot believe it is January, and that it’s 2010! Time is just spiraling out of control–it will be Christmas, again, before you know it!
Did everyone have good holidays? We did, although we did not get the snow that I’d hoped for. I wanted winter photos! We had snow flurries as we were driving out of the southern Appalachians. I think they were taunting us–“nah, nah, you missed us!” But, we were glad to get somewhere that should be warm. News flash! It was 37 degrees this morning, and we have a frost warning for this evening for east Central Florida.
Not to worry, it will warm up, eventually. Cool nights are good for sleeping, they seem to keep the hot flashes down somewhat.
As promised I have enclosed photos of our tree falls. This was quite a storm; everywhere around the area there were downed trees, and remnants of chain sawed falls that were across roads.
Here is an unpublished storm poem for you! Stay warm and cozy, everyone!
Blessings in the New Year!

Winter Wind-OH!

Woooooooooo! Wooooooooooo!
The Wind rises, higher and higher still
Winter rushes in, its timid whisper becoming a mighty
Perched on the crest of each swell of frigid air
Wind “surf” crashes onto storm-tossed trees
Sending a wake of autumn leaves splashing down
They skitter away like sand crabs
In advance of the next wave
Snow caps are approaching!
