a long weekend

my office is closed
its 
presidents day weekend 

right on the heels
 of 
valentine's day 

 no gift 
no token of love
is necessary

 many people
 go away
leave town
 for the weekend 

i bet
 a lot of those people
 didn't get away
 or
 didn't get away on time
 this year
 with
 all the snow making
 a mockery of airline schedules

 a dear friend 
works for one of the airlines
 she is a very unique woman
rarely
do things throw her
 nevertheless
 this year 
has been hell
 with 
all the bad weather
 causing
 many flight cancellations rebookings angry flyers

 i hope
 if you had plans
 to get away
you weren't 
too baldy
 affected
 by
snow sleet ice 

those of us who stayed home
 made it 
through 
another
 few inches of white

 it fell 
atop 
mounds 
of
icy
 no longer white snow

it brought
more
 icy
 sidewalks
streets
 to
 navigate

 however
 you can look forward
 to
 the end of the week 
having temps
 that actually
 make it out of the 30s

 not to be a downer
 but 
that means 
it might rain

 personally 
at this point 
in the year
 i would
 prefer 
rain 

wouldn't you?
