The slizzard
Shovelled most of the snow off the drive, steps and pavement yesterday at dusk thinking that (very pretty and I love being able to see so clearly at night, pink sky and all) was over but the joke was on me. Woke up to find some more and crusted with ice at that. At least I could get out of the drive, barely (lots of slush in the roads: slushy blizzard = slizzard), thanks to my otherwise Sisyphean labours.
Slip-slidin’ away
Slip-slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip-slidin’ away.
