BLIZZARD

ART AND POETRY BY PAUL AND KATHY BOECHER©

A blast of frigid air returns, the sky explodes with snow,

We don our hats and mittens. Our steps are  very slow,

We barely see, our noses freeze, our cheeks soon turn bright red,

The streets are filled with winter white, our cars won’t start – they’re dead, 

We realize it’s Saturday and we’ve no place to go,

We trudge back in and hunker down and simply let it snow.

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.

  1. Nice!

    Last December, the day after Christmas, we had a blizzard here in New Mexico that was worse than any snow storm I have ever seen, including the five years I lived in Maine! The winds reached hurricane force and blew for two days and two nights. A freight train was blown off the tracks four miles outside of town. Three big grain silos were blown over, a quarter mile from our house. We had no electricity for 21 hours. Tall trees blew down, and roofs all over town were destroyed, including ours.

    When the blizzard finally stopped, we had snow drifts over 10′ high outside our house. The roads in our county were impassable for days. Even a homeland security snow cat became hopelessly stuck, trying to reach stranded motorists!

    More than 30,000 cattle were killed in that storm, and several people lost their lives. I pray we never have a Goliath blizzard like that again.

      You’ve really lived through lots of storms in different parts of the country. I’m beginning to enjoy my life of retirement. It’s nice to know that our bodies and minds are still able, yet all of our parts don’t agree.

    I have to smile at steps being slow.. when we were young we ran through the snow, but now thoughts of falling and broken bones….at least that is how it is for me..

      I agree, Vicki. My husband were just talking about that as we shoveled the driveway together. At least we can still push a shovel and snow blower. It just takes longer.
