it was pretty

now
 all
 that lovely snow
 is
 melted
 or 
shoveled
 into the street
 to be 
mushed down
 til its gone
 by
 walkers
 by
 cars 

except 
at the intersections
 where it turns into fjords
 turning
crossing
 into
an 
olympic event

 you can wade through
 if
 you have boots that are water proofed
  you can try to gracefully step cross
 hoping
 you dont slip or fall 

me

 i am a klutz 
so any puddle wider
 than
 this
 i either wade through or try to walk around 

not signed
i added a bit of topaz labs
restyle street to it

  1. Oh boy, I always think of this mushy-ness as the prelude to spring...you know, that ugly in-between time when the world goes from brown to green, but there's still so much winter to get thru, isn't there? Be careful clutzy girl! My friend Celi (thekitchensgarden.com) recently had the wind sweep her off her feet and now she has a broken tail bone. Not fun at all.

  2. Snow doesn't age very well. One town we lived in when I was a kid in Utah everybody heated their house with coal. The snow started turning grey on day three. Gross. Imagine what our lungs looked like.

  3. Lovely when it's crisp and white then it turns to mush, such a shame.

  5. I heave a major Fear of Falling. If stuck or cornered by ice, sometimes I just want to sit down and wait for spring....

  6. If you're missing it, we still have plenty here!
    It's actually stayed really pretty and white too, but that's only because the thermometer has been refusing to read anything higher than about 16 for two days now. Brrrrrr
    xo.

  7. Daryl, that's usually the way it works around here! Snow chaos and then slush! Yuk!

  8. Maybe it will snow when we visit. I actually hope so as long as it starts after we arrive.
