Looks like Vero Beach, FL until the end!

May have posted before but sitting reading some old books I've writtrn and thought it was worth posting again!
Old Man Winter is a'comin'.


They look like fine-cut crystal
Each one's beauty all its own
Just more of nature's jewelry
Each one like a precious stone.

They're on a round trip journey
From earth to the sky and back
Sometimes they're few and short-lived
Break like fragile bric-a-brac.

At times in blinding fury
To turn the landscape snow white
They fall in countless numbers
All day long -- throughout the night.

There are few sights that compare
As they flutter to the ground
Or are carried by the wind
And spin wildly 'round and 'round.

But when winter is over
They'll return back to the sea
Then when Old Man Winter calls
They'll be back to amaze me.

Everyone should walk out through a blizzard (or just afterwards) at least once---taking good care, of course---just for the experience.

Having grown up in a cold climate I could relate to this poem.  Snow flakes are indeed gems.
