The snow doesn’t give a soft white damn whom it touches. ~e.e. cummings

Cairo helps to shovel out.

And it touched every part of this area, that’s for sure.

Home today due to the massive snowstorm yesterday that hit much of the country. The sheer power of the wind and the thundersnow phenomenon were quite impressive and really beautiful. (I would have enjoyed the whole thing immensely if I didn’t have to shovel out a long driveway today…) School has also been cancelled for tomorrow, so I will have time to recuperate from an awful cold and hopefully get out a few submissions as well as work on a new poem I started a couple of days ago.

Today, I am having some fun playing “Words with Friends” with a friend from work who is also home and messing around with a free app called “Verses” on the iPad – like refrigerator magnets, but much cooler graphics and the ability to email the poems to yourself or friends. This is my reward after a few hours of shoveling…sue me for not being more productive.  Hopefully I will have a new Big Tent poem to post on Friday. Stay safe and warm, everyone.

  1. I was trying to figure out “Cairo helps to shovel out” on my google reader – then realised it was the photo caption, and that it’s the name of your dog…
    I couldn’t quite see how events in Cairo linked to your snowstorm 🙂
    Dramas of nature and man-made dramas everywhere at the moment, what with massive snowstorms, a huge cyclone in Australia, battles in the streets of Cairo…

    • I can see why that would be confusing! I didn’t even think about the double meaning it might have…we named her Cairo because we adopted her shortly after a visit to the Middle East and my son (who was five at the time) said she looked like all the sand around the pyramids.
