Snow on a Picket Fence

(Toledo, OH) The winter storm that roared through Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan has already dumped six inches of snow in my neighborhood, and we could see a foot-deep white blanket covering the region by the afternoon. The wind created these tooth-shaped formations on the points of my picket fence, making the scene look more like the mouth of a tiger shark than a winter wonderland.

Thoughts of hungry sharks might lead a person to consider purchasing medical alert bracelets, though I suppose this would be small consolation to the family members of someone who wound up as the main course at the shark buffet line.

Here in Northwest Ohio, tropical waters are far from the tops of our collective minds, except in the sense that such locales sound more inviting as we plod through heavy snow.
