How can they be all
So very unidentical?
Knocking icicles down
You're melting snow angels
All over town
-The Halo Benders
My magical neighbor Leonna braves the weather in a Tyrolian-mountaineer-meets-Mary-Poppins outfit to arrive at our door:
We give her some graphic novels and Moonintroll books to get through the storm, and decide to walk her home... even though the sky is looking threatening again.
The weather moves in at the top of the hill. Leonna strikes an otherworldly silhouette against the impending white-out:
Between Tokyo and Paris
Between London and Dallas
Between your God and mine
Listen the snow is falling everywhere
Some really big trees come down across the road later that night, smashing the powerlines and a transformer, and knocking out the power for three days. No light, no computer, no running water, no music. Our world becomes very simple:
Until cabin fever sets in and Chris finds a garbage can lid in the shed, so that we can get Olympic on the slopes.
Later on, we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we made
Walking in a winter wonderland
Day Three without power: enter the Snownicorn.
...and he is still out there, ruling the kingdom of Snow.
