Waiting for first snow

MPR weather map

MPR weather map

First snow
forecast at six to twelve inches
tonight, tomorrow.
No snow yet
only six, twelve
a hundred
forecasts and warnings.

Gutters cleaned,
hoses coiled,
storm windows closed,
gardens put to rest.

Shovels wait on porches,
front and back.
Branches trimmed away from sidewalks,
bird feeder filled,
pavers placed
to hold the tarp against wind
this afternoon.

Waiting for the snow tonight,
ready to meet another winter.
