From a gentle breeze to a howling wind in a matter of minutes matched by a cold rain to a cutting snow and that's what we in Iowa call another wintery day. It's what we call expecting the unexpected and challenges us to life lessons learned over the years. The mention of a blizzard does not carry the sting it did not so many years ago as we have for the most part learned to cope and the inconvenience of what used to be a few days has been whittled for the most part, down to a day. Neighbors still help each other but what used to take hours digging out may only take a fraction of the time with the advent of snow blowers. I am in no mood to test the streets but feel assured I can make any city destination and back with caution for the conditions. I fear a fall on the sidewalk or parking lot more than an accident on the roadway. The snow has now subsided but the wind continues it's shrill chorus as it zips through the bare branches of the tree and picks up the restless flakes of snow to deposit them in drifts in open spaces. Suffice to know that I will not be tempted to battle the elements today, I've got a nice hot cup of coffee and some very outdated science fiction movies on the screen that will allow me to accomplish other goals and not lose the story line. Science fiction never compares to science fact.
