Blizzard Ends Cleaning Up And Digging Out Begins

Is it time to reconsider that the biggest threat to us is climate change?
As up to three feet of snow falls in the East time to views of climate to rearrange?
Almost 20 killed; a huge swath of the U.S. completely shut down
Millions of acres now covered with an icy snow covered crown
The blizzard of 2016 once again proves how little when it comes to weather we know
We cannot predict the weather in the future whether it be rising temps or in this case way too much snow
The Big Apple’s travel has been lifted on Sunday’s early morning hours
Good luck on moving one’s car buried under the feet of drifting snow driven by the gusting winds’ power
A snow shovel lifting snow can be a deadly weapon wield
A danger to the user whose heart may to the exertion fatally yield
The worst thing about snow is that it may come down pristine and white
Only to start melting and then freezing with lower temperatures at night
Walking through slush without waterproof boots is not for the faint of heart
Walking on icy sidewalks is an exercise in slipping and falling as gravity seems to depart
Airports closed, trains with tracks blocked and subways shut down
Amazing what happens when a city becomes covered with a snowy crown
