Z is for . . . Zero
The temperature has hovered around and below zero. The wind-chill readings drop even lower. Winter’s rampage is in full swing.
In such times, we find ourselves feeling particularly thankful for warm shelter. Does winter frighten us? Not at all, if we are safely ensconced in our cozy spot.

“You can't get too much winter in the winter.”
Bottled Up –
A Limericked Rill on Winter’s Chill
The mercury by my front door
Is lower than the day before.
The Great Midwest
Is hearing Old Man Winter’s roar.
The crystallizing banks of snow
Cast a zirconic glitter-glow.
With striking sight
Of frigid blight,
The temps hit zero and below.
We hunker in our hovels warm
And pray protection from the storm.
The bluster howls
And bares his jowls;
In eight short weeks shall he transform.
No worries have we, as we wait.
We watch the wintry wake, sedate.
For in our clime
It’s only time
Till tundra’s terrors shall abate.
