My Funny Valentine's Back Up For Free

After a few days' pause, the e-book edition of our humor anthology My Funny Valentine is set back to free again--this time until the 13th, the day before Valentine's Day.

My piece is, oh, about halfway in, right about where the heart would be.  Tell all your friends! Why? Um, because I already told all of mine.

Song Parody: Stop The Snow


I  first posted this a couple of years ago, but it seemed really  appropriate today, since as I type this there's a winter storm raging  outside. I hate winter storms. Well, only if I have to go out in them,  or pay for heating the house during them, or if it's winter. Otherwise I  don't mind. Anyway,  I worked foolishly hard on this, so I decided to put it up again. 

But  here's the thing: parody songs are really only good if you're familiar  with the original, which in this case is "Let It Go" from Frozen.  If you have kids of a certain age, you've not only heard it, but you're  sick of it. (I'm not--but my kids are all grown up, and I've only seen  the movie once.) If you haven't heard it, you can here:

   Or see the original lyrics here:

  I know what you’re thinking: “Why, Mark? Why?” Good question—I don’t even find it easy. But I present you with: “Stop the Snow”.    
 


The snow’s piled high almost to my thigh
It’s so cold I want to scream
No sign of spring salvation
I’m stuck in a snow globe dream

The wind howls through windows, bringing swirling snow inside
Couldn’t keep it out, plastic sheets I tried

Let the dog in, his frozen pee
Is an icicle I never want to see
My hands can’t feel—this weather blows
Thanks to the snow

Here are some photos of ice rescue training held recently at the Albion fire station. The AFD has a variety of equipment for water rescue, including a boat and inflatable rescue boats, flotation devices, and ice rescue suits that help insulate the rescuer.

Ice and water rescue training includes classroom sessions, practice in donning and using the equipment, and finally live training outside on the ice and in the water.

Please use extreme caution if going on the ice, especially in areas of springs and flowing water, in warm weather, and other times when the ice might be thin.
