Snow business.



















Snow can be lovely, the subject of art
And too much at once, a matter apart.
But why, in God’s name
Would anyone sane,
Gather it up to put in their cart?

  1. Why indeed?
    There’s no rhyme or reason to it, unless you wanted to transport it to your ice house?

  2. In areas where they get large amounts of snow, they often haul the the first away so they wont' have to deal with such large piles later. Even couple of feet of snow can make a large pile and I have been in areas where they got twelve or fifteen feet (4-5 meters) in a single winter. only by getting the first few snow far enough away could they provide a place to shovel the later ones.

  8. A clever twist and really quite funny. It’s what lays beneath that snow on the cart that worries me.
