And Now a Nor'Easter

Strange weather we have been having here in the Shire.
Winter arrived and stayed and stayed and stayed.
And now a late winter nor'easter has muscled its way in
lest the snow and ice get all the attention.
A nor'easter brings soaking rains and high winds
that circle in from the northeast, 
hence the name.

This photo of  a Winter 2010 Nor'Easter shows the northeast spiral:

The rain splashes against the windows. The wind whistles at the doors.
Occasional rumbles of thunder break through.
It's not the spring I hoped for,
but it sure makes for a cozy evening
when we're all tucked inside,
weathering the storm
