There the snow is so deep that it broke through doors,
pouring into people's homes. Here we got
a mere brushstroke, one that swept white across
our landscape. The snow brought new
contrast to the red and faint greens of this bush.
It is nearly gone now, melted from the bright sun,
with warmer temperatures forecast
for the weekend. There will be rain to melt
the remaining snow. Once again, good for us but
not so great for the people in Buffalo,
who will have to cope with floods caused
by the melting mass of snow.
