I’m thankful for the snow plows,
even though I’ve been on the road for two and a half hours.
The kids are in school, now.
Where were you during the moments I cowered?
Watching vehicles unable to slide their way up a slope.
Slipping into this or hitting that.
I’m not any better, I felt like such a driving dope.
Had trouble controlling my stop to go, nerves shot at the drop of a hat.
But, I appreciate what you’re doing, don’t stop clearing.
I still need to bring my kiddos to violin lessons and home.
Oh, wait! The roads are clear, now; no one’s causing a ding.
Thanks anyway and thanks for nothing. Now I can feel free to roam.
