Weather.



On stormy nights
back in my cave,
I swear I should  sue the contractor
who installed the wrong windows for this weather.

 At dawn
I pick up my non-fat-latte-double espresso
at the only drive-through
not affected by the power outage
of last night's storm,
brightly resurrected and
happy to be behind the wheel again.

  3. I just read that the icy snow storms are headed your way. Be careful out there!

  4. We've had a half day of clear skies, expecting another storm to hit in the next six hours.
    Candles, sandwiches, a thermos full of strong coffee and lots of blankets.

  5. oh rosaria, are we too comfortable with comfort? do we expect it now? remember all of your stories, your memoirs? have we come so far? and is it the right kind of distance?

    HOWEVER, nobody should mess with the coffee:-)

  6. Here's hoping you are warm and cozy and the power stays on. Oh, and that you have a good book ... or two ... or more!
