OLDER AND WISER????

OLDER AND WISER????

This blogger is older and wiser (???)

With visits from Austin’s Snow Miser…

I hear down in Maine

It’s snowing again,

The piles will have to go higher!

ONE STREET AT A TIME

ONE STREET AT A TIME

 

With white-out conditions out there

Some drivers think it’s unfair…

That plows won’t do

Their own street too,

And keep it more than just fair.

One hundred, two hundred trucks,

Out in the city to buck…

Mostly main streets

Where emergency fleets

Have to run with any luck.

Plowing right to the road

Means traffic slowed…

With faster passes

The driving masses

Are safer without being towed.

Using sand increases traction

On roads less needed for action…

My town has a mix,

Salt/sand which sticks

Enabling proper enaction!

Some folks have come back to stay

For a while til snowfall goes away…

When road crews can sand

Gaining the upper hand,

Until then, make coffee and pray.

SNOW PLOWMAN’S LIMERICK

SNOW PLOWMAN’S LIMERICK

A snowplow guy I know,

Thinks we’re due more snow…

He regularly prays

For work that pays

When snowfall forecasts grow!
