Minnesota White

The sky blankets us with a grey mask of clouds. The thermostat may not reach 20 today. Crystal shards line the street where a plow left its remains. The hardened, pressed snow crunches beneath your feet and your shoes collect a white coating of salt. You refuse to don your boots. You stubbornly resist getting that extra warm jacket out of the closet.

It’s November in Minnesota. We aren’t ready for this. We know we have no choice, but to accept our destiny. We reluctantly wait for just one more above freezing day to decorate the house with lights. Maybe next year – maybe in time to take them in again – maybe I’ll just forget it, AGAIN!⛄️❄️

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I am in Arkansas now, but I remember those bitter winters; mine were in Wyoming…where the Weather guy would look at the camera with a straight face and say, “warmer temperatures today as we seem them rise into double digits by afternoon”. So, i feel for you all up there LOL.

  2. I’m only going to put 2000 feet of lights on my front fence and put out 15 5 foot wreaths. No other lights. Keeping it simple this year. It’s way too cold for this early.
