35 days til spring

 it snowed again
 i had a massage appointment on the eastside
 it was brisk
in the mid 30s
 when i bussed cross town
at 9 AM
 when i left the spa
at 11AM
 it was snowing
 big lovely wet flakes 
the sort that don't stick 
to your gloves or scarf
 the sort 
you can catch with your tongue

 i bussed back cross town
 walked up to 
hale and hearty
some of their wonderful 10 veggie soup
 stopped into 
toonman's turkey meatballs

 walked out of zabars
after maybe 
20 min
to see
 those lovely big wet flakes
 those little flakes
 that seem 
more like a snow shower
 than snow fall
 i didn't even feel like i needed to pull up the hood of my jacket 
they were so light

we watched
 the wolf of wall street
almost 3 hrs
  i looked out the window
 to see
 at least
 an inch of new snow
it was still falling

 spring is a mere 35 days away

the eastside
 a lot cleaner 
 the west

 see for yourself
