Something told the wild geese
It was time to go.
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered—’Snow.’”

TIME:  8:33 AM
PLACE:  S. 52nd St.
SUBJECT:  Canadian geese

The kiddos were off school today because of the freezing weather. *rolls eyes*.  I still had to go to work though.  When I got into the Jeep on this morning, the outside temperature gauge read 5 degrees Fahrenheit….a bit chilly.  You know its freezing when you see Canadian geese all curled up in a ball to keep warm.  These guys were on a lake near my office building.  Their bottoms have got to be frozen!
