HAIKU MONDAY: On Snow Daze, Glory Holes and WTH?

Welcome back to Haiku Monday, where Fish Hack is pissed that great babysitting service known as the Medford School District is taking another day off because local parents don’t know how to drive in snow.

Snow, ice on the roads?/Really? Drive like they aren’t there?/You should be grounded.

For you few Haiku Monday virgins out there, this is when and where Fish Hack waxes on and off non-Brazulian style about the outdoors and whatever the hell else comes to mind, with some bad forms of Japanese poetry sprinkled in for the schtick.

Cuz you gotta have a schtick to stick out in the cyber world.

Waking up to a temperature of 7 Sunday in Medford pretty much decided if steelhead were part of the weekend. Seven is a good day when it’s your catch, not your ambient air temperature.

Pipes didn’t freeze, but Hack’s jeans did on a hike in the Jacksonville Woodlands.

Too much slow to climb onto the new Glory Hole lid at the intersection of the Rich Gulch and Petard trails.

Lids on Glory Holes./Got to protect weakest links./Check it out yourself.

Spent the weekend Driving Miss Most Significant Other around town.

Her Honda Civic that’s rides so low that Fish Hack feels like he’s about to get an asphalt enema just couldn’t cut it in the snow and ice.

Hack’s mega-pickup rocked it, for sure. FWD is a BFD when weather gets extreme.

Why buy four-wheel-drive?/Power all wheels or stay home/When town turns to ice.
