WEATHER FORECAST (028/365 DAYS, 4.0)


"As the Wind Carves the Snow

Monday... 
You know how I love those. 
It started with a mouthful of snow 
as the wind kept pushing the stuff in my face, 
but this said, 
the total accumulation in the city was unimpressive, 
given past snowstorms we've had so far. 
By midday though, 
temperature dropped as the sun came out 
and the wind pushed us around with a vengeance, 
spinning around us like a mad dervish, 
swallowing us and trying to rip our soul apart 
as you gasped for air. 
Visibility was another matter... 
There were many car pile-ups in throughout the province. 
One can only presume people didn't properly consider the weather conditions 
and were driving as if nothing. 
I know that a woman ran a red light at high speed 
and could have run me over 
if I had dashed to catch my light. 
The names I called her, 
I'll spare you the details. 
Later on, 
I saw a guy running a red light and then, 
and he made wild gestures at another driver that was trying to cross the boulevard 
but hesitated when he saw that moron running the red light. 
The moron sped away, 
and me and that [prudent] driver looked at each other 
and we shrugged... 
I think we both shared the same opinion of that moron... 
Some folks are a danger on these roads 
and they should lose their license. 
I've said it before and I'll say it again: 
Driving is not a right, but a privilege. 
Earn it!! 
As for those who live east of year, 
brace yourselves!! 
Be safe!!

  1. Our sea breezes (cyclonic winds) have just picked up again. But at a sunny 15C/59F, not much to complain about. I keep planning to get some photos of the wind-swept sand...

  3. I thought we were in for a poem at first, but in any case the description was quite graphic. I hate the stuff so you have my sympathy.

    1. Honey, I get poetic only when I am suicidal....
      A far as snow is concerned,
      I am utterly disgusted with the stuff this being way over my Jan 15th limit
      but I can still handle it.
      It is actually nice out there, in a way, according to Canadian standards....
      which are pretty low, like the temperature on the thermometer....
