As if you didn’t know…
Winter is officially here…
And while many romanticize how beautiful everything is covered in snow…
Winter can be brutal, treacherous, and just downright…
And because I walk in the park everyday now…
(Because really, if I could walk in NYC during their worst storm in 60 years
I have no excuse, right?)
I’m often hampered and hammered by adverse weather conditions…
So, here’s my tribute to…
Old Man Friggin’ Winter.
On the first day of winter
The Old Man gave to me
– A lake effect snow warning
On the second day of winter
The Old Man Winter gave to me
– A wind chill advisory
On the third day of winter the old man gave to me
– A blizzard storm warning
On the fourth day of winter the old man gave to me
– Freezing rain and sleet
On the fifth day of winter the old man gave to me
– Ten inches of snow
– With thunder and lightning
– Blowing and drifting
– Slipping on sidewalks
– Skidding on black ice
– Ten frozen toes
– Freezing my ass off
– And a non-stop dripping nose
OK, so I'm not the best lyricist...
But if you've experienced a bad winter...
Maybe you can relate?
P.S. Yeah, yeah I know, winter is tolerable sitting inside by a fire drinking something. Or if you’re into winter sports or a kid.
