THE 12 WAYS OF WINTER

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…
COLD!
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?



Always, Em-Musing

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.

LOL! I love this. So clever. I even sung it! I grew up in Australia and now I live in Greece, so winter hasn't ever really been too bad ...

It's horrible here, too. Just ice everywhere. Snow, I don't mind. Ice...

haha! how fun :-)

I'm not a big fan of winter. That's why I'm having so much trouble moving out of winter :-)

I'm going to risk the wrath here, but I love winter ... We got two feet, yes you read that right, two feet of fresh snowfall Tuesday night, into Wednesday. It's beautiful, and peaceful. I guess each season has its own beauty :)

I used to cross country ski. LOved the snow then. Now, I'm very aware that my hips could break.
