It has not, not yet...
But upraised its gray, inexpressive clouds-
It record certainly has!

In their bleak, black-flight
Notes: here is a cardinal text Haiku, on the culmination of wintertime in Minnesota, in 2007. Minnesota is known for its winters active out same a lion, and so it has well-tried so in the period of time of March, of 2007, when this nursery rhyme was scrivened. It would be time of year would simply stop, and springtime would move in, but it ne'er happens that way. Even the crows have a spell of incident to readapt to the new season, for the winter has helped them change gauzy and lean, and has helped the world in Minnesota to bud fat, because they kip in the lodging a little. Then in season the crows turn fat, and the world embark on budding lean, they get out of the put up as before long as possible-and consequently at hand is no end to their endeavours.
Commentary on Winter Storms: Winter storms are simply a bit of the culture, a reality of life, or so it would seem to be in Minnesota; I was born there, in St. Paul, and have witnessed many another of them. Severe wintertime storms go final as far as upwind reportage goes, to perhaps, Nov 10, 1835, when a harsh tempest caused 19shipwrecks on Great Lakes, 254 sailor's died´. And then on Nov 8, 1870 the premier winter tornado preventive was issued by the U.S. Army Signal Corps. On March 14-15, 1941 very bad blizzard in hesperian counties, 85-mph winds at Grand Forks, 75 mph winds at Duluth. In 1996, we had 3 blizzards, and in 1997, we had v blizzards. The sum seasonal precipitation fall, is betwixt 90 and 120 inches.
