Short Story

She knew the weather is bad, but she was determined to venture out to the bodega, to get milk, as she had none left. Bundled up, she encountered white out conditions, and soon enough, she got disoriented, and didn’t know where she was.

The next morning her son woke up, and his mother was not home. He called his aunt to see if she was there, and she said no.

An hour later, there was a knock on the door. It was the police notifying him, that a man out walking his dog. found her face down on a snowbank, and apparently froze to death.

Short Story

The air outside is hot

The air is stifling

The dogs are laying in the shade

The old man is sitting on the stoop

Playing the blues with his harmonic

The people who pass by are smiling

The old man knows it all good

Short Fiction

Spring

The calendar tells
me that Spring
begins on March 20
at 12:30 a.m.

Weather people tell
me a snow storm is
going to happen on
the very first day of
a brand new season.

They .said we can
expect up to a foot
of heavy wet snow.

You got to love
the El Nino weather
patterns.

Snow No Snow

Last year nearing
the end of
February, we had
100 plus inches
of snow.
In some places
there were snow
piles higher
than a two story
building.

At this very
moment, there
is no snow
to be found.

An El Nino
weather pattern
will do that
in the northeastern
part of the US.

Maybe next
winter payback
could be a bitch.

Winter

Today is the first full day
of Winter. Here, in the
Northeast part of the
country, it is early in
the evening, and it is
in the mid-50s, come
Thursday near 70.

Truly weird weather.

Behind The Times

It was a great time
to be outdoors to
enjoy the nice weather.
So, I was looking at my
phone, and thought it
would be a good time
to go to my blog.

Along comes Ollie aka
‘The Village Idiot.’

He stops and asks me
what am I doing? I tell
him, I’m typing a post.
He said, that’s not a
typewriter. I know that.
You know Ollie, this is
not 1985, its 2015.
People can now use their
phones to type a post,
send a message, just about
do anything they like. Plus
they can talk and listen to.

Well, needless to say, Ollie
aka ‘The Village Idiot’ was
totally in awe, and didn’t
know what to say, so off
he went on his merry way.
It saved me the time to have
to explain how the times
have changed.

Just A Thought

With all
the snow
in the
past three
weeks, which
was a
good amount,
there is
one way
and the
best way
of looking
at it,
Laugh!

No sense
in getting
all bent
out of
shape, as
it won’t
do you
any good.

Besides, its
Winter!
Enjoy it,
maybe next
Winter will
be one
of those
small amounts
of snow.
