My Poem of the Day


Baby, It’s More Than Cold Outside!©

We wake to the cool of the house

The children attempt their morning showers

But the pipes are frozen

And the water has an unfriendly chill

So everyone moves forward with a chilled sponge bath

Thank goodness the heat hasn’t abandoned us

Everyone functions in slow motion

Dreading what is before them as they

Leave the warmth of the house behind

They scurry towards the car

Like squirrels to hide their parcels

I’m left to lock up the house

The cold air takes hold of my neck

Holding tight like a noose

I work frantically to

Seal the lock

Then rush forward to find warmth

in the comfort of our car

As we pull away

The sun glistens and I see a shadowy figure

That almost resembles a laughing ball of ice

Could it be that this cold day is taunting me?

Baby, It’s  More Than Cold Outside!

Birds drawn to frozen lake’s Vermont-New York ferry channels

CHARLOTTE, Vt. — Water birds that normally spread out across Lake Champlain are seeking refuge in the channels left by two ferry routes that carry passengers between Vermont and New York during this bitterly cold winter.

Bird watchers have been drawn to the Essex, N.Y., landing of the ferry from Charlotte in hopes of catching a glimpse of some rare birds that are usually scattered across the length of the 120-mile lake. During a winter of below-zero temperatures, the birds have been forced to forage the open water of the channels for food.

Birders hope to spot species like the single tufted duck, which is ubiquitous in Europe and Asia but exceedingly rare in the eastern U.S. It’s spending the winter in the lake along with mallards, black ducks and common goldeneyes.
