Winter Weather Update #NewHampshire

At Home in New Hampshire

In my last post I lamented about the 5-8 inches of snow we were going to get right in time for the big travel day before Thanksgiving. I also mentioned how the meteorologists get it wrong as often as they get it right.

Well, they weren’t exactly wrong about the snow. It did come. It came earlier than expected, lasted longer than anticipated and dumped over a foot of snow (in some areas up to 16”) in many places.

∞ Infinity

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

Tears in an ocean of sorrows
dropped leaves on an autumn day

Days to a joyous morrow
Smiles on a sunny bright day

Love expressed by infatuated
Dreams in a child’s sleep

Madness of crowds when poked
Burnt angel wings when a heart weeps

Steps on way to fabled heaven
Long sighs during a short tryst

Lost moments, wasted efforts
and counting infinity’s infinite list
