It snowed a few weeks ago on the way to work and I wanted to write about it but have not had time till now. Thank goodness the daily slice is back!!
It was snowing, just sputtering flurries as I left home. By the time I was well tucked into the highway crawl, it fluttered down in buckets. Clouds scooted so low I could have reached out my window and scooped in handfuls of ragged fluff. We crept along and then stopped completely. Not to worry. I could see the exit to my super secret shortcut just a few yards ahead.
The shortcut wound its way along service roads. Huge tanker trucks eased their way gingerly onto the white road. Up ahead was the turn that would bump me over the tracks and through the oil refinery, a bit smelly, but quicker than sitting in traffic.
I made the turn and entered a wonderland. Tall silver towers, each encased in a lattice of ladders loomed and vanished in the clouds. Every tower was lined in fairy lights. Snow flakes swirled. A hawk grew out of the mist, glided just past my windshield, and disappeared into the strange forest.
