Oh No! Not Yet!

It's Slice of Life Tuesday over at Two Writing Teachers.  Won't you join in?

Oh No! Not Yet!

I was running late for work when I looked out the window to see my car covered once again in dew.
Oh No! Not Yet!

I checked the thermometer - 39 degrees.
Oh No! Not Yet!

I opened my car door and decided I should put on my gloves.
Oh No! Not Yet!

I started the car and turned on the wipers - frost?
Oh No! Not Yet!

I opened the trunk and dug it out.
Oh No! Not Yet!


Scrape, scrape, scrape.
Oh No! Not Yet!

But Wait - didn't I post about the glorious weather last week?
But still...
Oh No! Not Yet!

I am not ready for winter to arrive.
Please...
Oh No! Not Yet!

  1. Love your repetition! And I agree . . . "Oh No! Not Yet!" But now you have me thinking. I'm not sure that I left a scraper in my car purchased after the end of last winter.

  2. I had to wear a winter hat running this morning and felt the same way ... but oh the ice scraper -- NOT YET!!! Love the poem - how it built with each line -- Ice skating???
