Snow?!? You've got to be kidding!

Over the past week, parts of Atlantic Canada have experienced one of the features ("It's not a bug, it's a feature!") of a Canadian spring -- June snow. In sympathy with the afflicted parts of the country, including those in the North where the winter's snow still lingers, we present this brief poem by Sci/Why contributor Margriet Ruurs - CE

Whether to Like the Weather or Not

Calm wind, clear sky, nice.
Shifting wind, scattered-cloud sky
Stratus clouds drifting by.
Cold front, sleet and ice.

Slightly drifting, shifting snow.
Freezing rain, snow and squall
I don’t like this at all.
Quick inside! Winter, go!

Cumulus clouds climbing high,
Cirrus clouds scatter
Back to sunny, warmer weather
And bright blue summer sky.
