Intense cold is yet to come
Just a faint hoar forms

As memories are evoked

    But all things are born to pass
    A spring there sure will dawn
    The chill then returns once again
    Making life a hoping game

    Spring would not seem quite as special if winter wasn't so long and miserable

    It is 3: 30 A.M. and in the upper 20s. Still not too bad to go out and stargaze. Won't be long til that will require a coat
