water – – haibun

Expanses of water surround the house in the fields below. It has been raining since yesterday. Most snow has washed away leaving only patches of ice that foreshadow the drama to come. Thanks to the science of meteorology, it won’t be a surprise when tonight the temperature starts to descend in measured steps to zero C…minus 1…minus 2…minus 3…minus 4…minus 6…minus 7…minus 8…landing at minus 9 on Monday morning. Freezing rain, snow, black ice, and power outages are on the way.

    1. So far, in my little corner of Ontario it hasn’t been as bad as expected… it varies all over. We had a small hydro outage a few days ago but I was expecting another one with all the rain and then the temperature drop. It keeps you guessing 🙂
