Here's number 10 (and I will have 10 more in my files after this one)!
Today it was cold and clear out. It's supposed to warm up a bit for tomorrow and maybe we'll get some rain. On the coast we often get rain mixed with snow, which then freezes nice and solid, though chunky.
My sister-in-law just fell on the ice and broke her leg. Today is pin setting day for her. Metal is being installed in her leg today to help strengthen her tibia. I guess back a number of years that kind of a break would make it so someone limped forever after that. Or I suppose even losing the leg could have been the outcome. It is so wonderful that now we can have most maladies and injuries remedied fairly well, if not perfectly.
So I guess this should be a winter and ice kind of poem today. Let's see if it is.
Snow draped vales, frosty valleys
Echo snowflake sighs

Yes, it is.
