Ode to a Frigid Minnesota Winter



Life is rich, though I am not
I live in Minnie, yep, that's my lot                    

It's cold as heck here in the North land
dreaming of the tropics, feet in the sand

Don't get me wrong, I treasure my life
but lodged in my nostrils is frozen ice

Scrolling TV screens; students stay home
no leaving your house or disaster you'll roam

Tired of Minnesota making the news
with wind chills below fifty; it's not a rouse

Black ice, winter blues and more...
summertime temps are what we live for...

  1. Lots of yearnings for the beauty of spring and the warmth of summer. Winter while being severe is also leisurely lingering much to the consternation of a whole lot of people! Nicely Laura!

  4. I agree! I'm in Iowa, and we haven't been quite as cold, but we've missed so much school. I think I've frozen a couple of layers of skin off taking care of the animals outside.

  8. With such a dreadful winter, summer would be the only hope to live for. The description of cold has really come out in your words.

  9. How complex we are, the human race, and how diverse our environments. While you freeze and sneeze your way through winter, I melt and sweat through a sub-tropical summer.

    I enjoyed the humorous tone of this.

    Peace & Blessings

  10. I don't envy you. Even here in southeast Texas it's been an unusually cold winter. I can't even imagine living where you do.

  11. Laura,

    You DEFINITELY have my sympathies over the weather you've been enduring! I was so thankful to enjoy a couple of days of above-freezing weather last week here in the midwest rivers' land. I love snow and don't mind cold weather too much but I worry so much about animals and the folks who are homeless and having to endure it.

    I loved your word-play with this post, by the way, and snow-fully Winter will be on his way out the door soon and Spring will be dashing in full of sunshine, showers and flowers!
