A good chunk of North America is under winter’s cold spell right now and we are all yearning for warmer temps or at the very least, sunny skies.
Outside my frosty window there’s quite the sight,
red thermometer needle gives up its fight
to keep the temperature on even keel
as grey, overcast skies give a wintry feel.
Overnight lows approach minus thirty-four,
chilly Northwest winds drop it down even more.
We look for a reason to venture outdoors,
but that would require donning woolly drawers.
Reaching out for the heat adjusting lever,
we stay indoors, fighting our cabin fever.
Perhaps, if we eat a bowl of hot porridge
We’ll find a way to survive this cold storage.
