Final Snowfall


After a long-running series of wild tantrums, Winter stepped on Spring’s toes in the door and smacked her backward. Before Winter could be stopped, she had tossed a fresh coating of white “stuff” everywhere.
She was immediately called in to the office by 2014 and expelled from the calendar.

“We’ve worked with her for months,” explained 2014 coordinator Richard Corcoran. “We’ve seen no improvement in her behavior. Sunday, Monday, and Thursday, as well as St. Patrick’s Day and Easter, have lodged formal complaints, and we understand that Wednesday is preparing to file a lawsuit. The entire calendar is upset, and we can’t let one season ruin it for everyone.”

According to Corcoran, the Seasonal Equality Coalition is planning to respond to the expulsion, but since Winter impinged on Autumn, their case is weak and not expected to be successful.

“This is the final snowfall,” Corcoran stated firmly. “We’re done with Winter.”

Winter was not available for comment, and nobody cares what she has to say anyway.

    If Winter had a facebook page, I would think there would be a cabillion “don’t likes” on that page.
    The final snow fall–really? I hope so.
    We had winds here over 50 MPH with sleet and then snow. This has got to stop! :hissyfit: Eventually. Maybe.

    Please NO MORE SNOW! I am originally from Walton, but moved away when I was itty-bitty. Ended up in Boston, and am back to WV now….full circle! But we left Boston to get AWAY from the snow! LOL! Keep up your AMAZING work, you inspire me! The book was incredible and I could smile as I read it, when you talk about going to the store in Walton…my Mamaw Fields’ house was two houses down from that little store and I would walk there all the time when I was little, usually for candy or a pop! Going to share your site on my facebook..Hills of Mercy Hollers of Grace…keep up the great work, so proud to be originally from Walton and so glad I found your site!!!!!!!!!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
