Winter reflections

Elmo stared at his sledding companion in disbelief, wondering how someone could be so stupid. “Hey Chodo,” Emlmo said, “I don’t think you should go down that icy slope standing on the sled.” But Chodo wasn’t listening, and neither was Clownface. The duo began one of their last descents down the hill — ever. Even if the venture down the hill didn’t claim their lives, the warm temperatures would soon kill their mountain. Highs today are around 40 with winds increasing in the evening. Wednesday would see temperatures in the mid-20s. Those guys are lucky spring’s going to be here in not too long, Elmo thought.
