Haiku: Winter

Ashley, one of the Haiku authors, is moving to Tahoe. Silly girl.
Been there, done that, have lots of advice, mostly about driving ….

And so, with no Further Ado, it’s


Mair’s contribution:

Rain, so much better.
You think the 405 sucks?
Nothing like the snow!

Lesson number one,
Beth and I raised in Snowville,
Pump the brakes, baby.

HUGE change in drive style.
Must drive very slowly now.
Snow bank, here I come!

Warm and toasty bed,
It’s a white, white world outside,
Why should I get up?

The floor is soooo cold,
My bed was soooo very warm,
Call in sick again?

Ashley chimes in:
Big black dog digging,
White blanket covers the ground,
She’s never seen snow.

Brand new ice scraper,
Brand spankin’ new studded tires,
Ashley scared s***less

24 inches,
24 hour blizzard,
Not leaving the house.

And I Get The Last Word:

Leaving the driveway
Six feet of snow in the way
Get out the shovel.

Look at the new snow!
So beautiful and pristine!
Get out the shovel.

Want to go to work?
Better start really early.
Get out the shovel.

Harrah’s to the “Y”?
Hope you are not late.
Tourists bumper to bumper.

Steer into the skid
Getting high-centered can suck.
Brakes are not your friend.

Easy to get stuck
Always take kitty litter
Traction in a bag!

Using a light touch
Brakes or accelerator
Often saves the day

First rule of Tahoe:
Beware San Jose drivers
They always panic.
