    Streets glazing
    trees swaying
    lights flickering
    sleet falling
    all around is
    the coldness
    and the stuff
    just keeps on
    falling

    Power lines falling
    customers calling
    frantic the candle
    search begins
    how long you ask
    them at customer
    service, "Could
    be two days or more!"
    I remember when it
    was more than four.

    Seeking refuge or
    giving refuge or riding
    it out like back in the
    day... No lights, no micro
    waveable, no pc's, no
    cordless phones or answering
    machine functioning.
    Lights flash in the distance
    as transformers are disfunctioning


    Complainining?
    No, from that I am refraining.
    Winter in the Midwest is always
    brutal.
    Been mild
    Now it's wild
    So I gather my stuff
    and just smile
    And I walk out the door
    where the coldness is
    all around
    and we will spend time
    as a family in one house
    for a while!

    Am I complaining?
    No I am observing!
