    I like the line about the mind wandering in the snow. Mine tends to go wandering out onto the highway I can see from one of my windows o__O

    Two days ago I shoveled my way out through that soggy-white stuff. My coffee is cold. Time for a refill. Nicely painted! I hope the groundhog is right and spring will soon be here. Thanks!

    Oh man, nothing is worse that bad hotel coffee. I feel your pain. Great take on the prompt!

  14. Good work capturing the Trifecta of issues: cold/snow, bad coffee and writer’s block. Your photo really compliments the mood you were attempting to create.

  15. Really good use of the prompt. Quick. I was there in the moment.

    Great idea to write about not knowing what to write about. But then, there is the snow. Nice entry.

    Heh. I get this, for sure. It seems like *something* should come to mind after staring out the window a while, and hey – I guess it did!
