Unlike when I was in school “Snow Days” don’t count during your winter training sessions. You just have to get out there and get it done no matter what the day brings. The roadways are often difficult when having to dodge cars, ice patches and slushy road side segments. Having said all that I do Love this time of year. It’s easy to breath, the scenery is all new and the roads are less populated but are well traveled.
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
