If you’ve ever lived in Montana or visited during spring (or any other season), you’d know that there’s nothing more unpredictable than our weather. The sudden radical changes–though irritating–can also be quite thought provoking as well.
The Gods Need To Get Their Act Together or Maybe Just Leave Us Out of It Because I Prefer It When Our Weather Acts Correctly
Hades and Persephone have Ended their marital spat Cause one day it was acting like spring And then it was winter like that But it must've been pretty bad Cause this Christmas was the one of the greenest I think we've ever had I hope they don't get along too well Cause that itself is an issue You see, come May, I'd like to see tulips And robins and green grass too
Winter Has Come
The snow, the snow is here Too early, too cold, too fierce The first snowfall should be A gentle, magical,wished-for thing Not this terror. The wind is shrieking, howling The trees bowing beneath its rage It’s blinding white outside And the air is bitter, biting cold Freezing your breath in your throat Chilling you to the bone The snow has come too early If it is so fierce now, What will it be like in the middle of winter?
From Glimpses of a Weekend Road Trip: 11:12 am – The Great Divide
We've been driving- maybe fifteen minutes And the world has changed seasons At the beginning of the pass- fall colors Rust red bushes, golden tamaracks, dark green pines A gentle rain falling, dogs and clouds all around Now we're at the middle of the pass and the scenery- white It's the middle of winter now Snow piles on trees, the sky invisibly gray The windows fogged up, the cold creeping through Lookout Pass? As if We can't see anymore through the storm There's snow plows and weather warnings Yes, welcome to Idaho- it's winter here
