Ice cold air,
sliding doors frozen shut,
inhales that burn your lungs,
shivers that last for days.
Single digit temperatures
transition into the negatives
during the night
last until morning.
It's too cold,
too too cold.
Too cold to do
anything outside.
The day's activities
consist of sitting
by the fire,
hiding under blankets,
working on puzzles,
drinking hot tea,
and wearing fuzz socks
to protect my toes
from the kitchen floor.
The snowfall over night
will likely remain in place
for the foreseeable future
due to the cold air
and lack of sun
when it hits 
its peak at noon.
