"Tustin Skies"

 

 

Tustin skies wear

Ragged coats of
Battleship grey
Roil the atmosphere
As ominous agents
Of cold and rain.
They cannot be
Gainsaid
While we shiver

I'm not complaining, friends, I have no right to, I know many of you-- most of you -- live in much colder places.
 
But Man Alive! This is a cold winter in Orange County, One morning last week it was 44 degrees in mid-morning,
 
On the SSCW Factor, that's 15 below 0 F.

Well .. time to knock the icicles off my nose and ear lobes ..
