|On Amtrak in Connecticut in the Storm|
Clickety-Clack, Train on a Track
train on a track
in snow and sleet
of ties and rails
wind whips aloft
through each town
over each hill
the snowflakes fall
the buildings reach
and sea at last
the train track ends

Ok. Here's the format. No. I've changed my mind. I'm not going to tell you.
I took Amtrak from Philly to Boston and Concord bus from Boston to Portland in the snowstorm on Monday. We hit the whole thing. It was an amazing storm to follow up the coast in a train all day...not so much fun on a bus in Boston with whiteout conditions...
but I made it.

|The snow was sticky for this last storm so it made for some beautiful frosting on the trees, but heavy to move it.|
