Story Starter Challenge for April 27th. Sentence Prompt: There’s a storm brewing.
I heard all week that we’d be getting snow this weekend but I didn’t believe it until I woke up today and saw this. A dusting, not that bad, but there’s a storm brewing all over the country I hear.
They say this is the end of April.
I thought it was April showers bring May flowers, not April snow brings May cold.
A 3 stanza haiku about winters return in March.
As I sit here today looking outside, I’m trying to think of what it would be like to be out in the elements. We’ve had some pretty bad weather this winter and this past weekend it was snowing, blowing, ice pellets, and very high winds here in Ontario, Canada. Today it is still snowing and looks a bit windy out there. Think I’ll hibernate today.
Shaking the trees
Cold to the bone
Gasping for air
Desperately seeking cover
Cannot find shelter
Frostbite is evident
Hypothermia sets in
Collapsing from exhaustion

I took this picture the other night and I was hoping to catch the sparkles on the snow. They looked amazing. I probably should have put on my boots and coat and went outside to get a better shot. I was on my way to bed, opened the front door, and took the picture. Now looking at it, it almost looks like a foreign planet perhaps. If you look carefully you can see little white specs.
