EARLY SPRINGTIME STORM LYRICS

EARLY SPRINGTIME STORM LYRICS

(to tune of THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

Tonight I’m feeling anxious

About this weekend’s storm,

By then I may be working

And driving as was the norm…

Going to make sure Di. is safe*

With charged battery packs,

If the lights go out she can move her chair

To get whate’er she lacks!

Oh, an early springtime snowstorm

Can be a wondrous thing,

A final chance to earn some bucks

For those who do plowing…

Most towns are near the end of salt

In their reserve supply,

We’ll take it for one more big blow

So let those snowflakes fly!

Emergency batteries

Hooked to my C-PAP,

So I can sleep with the power out

And wake up feeling apt…

We have enough blankets

And oil for lantern light,

The Lord will provide our meals–

Peanut butter is in sight!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Di., …short for Diana…my beloved wife who has a power lift recliner she’s gotten stuck in during power outages.
