Going, Going, Gone

The skies cleared, the sun came out and down the road a school bus slowed to a stop.  Do their brakes always squeal?  Kids stared gloomily out dirt-streaked windows.  Yesterday’s snowman, once tall and proud with gravel eyes and a very distinctive nose, was now a hat and scarf  atop a melting pile of snow.

  1. Poor snowman! (though I secretly hope he can't come back again until next year).

    Vividly descriptive, Linda! Great 55!

  2. Ha!!
    There could always be a reincarnation of ole frosty yet this Season!
    Loved your 55 Linda...
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  3. So sad for now, but he'll be back next season.

  4. poor snowman but good for us! its 75 here today...yay!

  5. That sounds so sad, but I'm glad the dude has gone. It's time for some sun!

  6. Talon- Thank you. I am ready for Spring, too. It was 73 degrees here today!

    G-Man- Thanks! Let's hope Frosty is down for the count.

    cube- Oh, he'll be back, but for now he's a pile of slush.

    Brian Miller- Yeah, really good for us!

    Linda- I am so ready - it was really nice today.

  7. This was really nice and almost, ALMOST, made me feel bad about the melting snow :-)

  8. And, I wasn't a bit sorry to see him go!

    Great 55!

  9. That is the story of the 'life' of a snowman :(
