The Trickle - Snowy Dec. 14 edition

December 14, 2010 - Brian Ferry
Snow Usually, when the first real snow hits Warren (I'm talking Warren, here, not Scandia, they like to jump the gun on the snow), it goes away after a few days and then there's a period of relative warmth. Not so this year. I'm not a fan of snow. So I'm not a big fan of our weather so far this season. Still, I'm willing to look at the silver lining every once in a while, even where snow is concerned. I was walking on the sidewalk along Market Street to the courthouse in a blizzard this afternoon. Nothing too unusual there. Somewhere around Second Avenue I happened to notice the sounds coming from my boots. I was creating the Monty Python coconut horse sound with every step. It was a very consistent sound for at least 10 steps. As each foot rolled from heel to toe, the snow packed in (I'm guessing here) the tread of the boots in a very distinct triplet sound. I was walking a little more quickly than normal (probably because I didn't want to become statuary) and each group of triplet snow sound was separated from the next by just the right amount for me to hear the horses of Arthur, King of the Britons. The thickness (thicth?) of the snow changed shortly after I lost the sound and I never got it back. Apparently my horse got away. I am not, however, suggesting, that horses migrate, whether or not they be carrying coconuts.
