Grey skies. Blustery winds blow over the landscape. There is no one else in sight.
Friends? Brothers? Fellow soldiers in this fight?
All gone home 🏡.
Only you. And the enemy.
A cold 🥶 formidable. One whose tenacious tactics demoralize the ordinary.
But you are not an ordinary fighter. You are extraordinary 💪.
You are motivated by honor and duty. Duty to the city and fellow citizens.
You will not rest until the battle is won.
Progress is slow going. But inch by inch you gain traction.
Has it been 10 minutes or 10 hours? Certainly not 10 days you hope!
Victory is on the horizon. You are almost done. One last effort. There!
Sweat mixed with ice to form a salty slush on your face. 😓 You’re exhausted, but proud.
The driveway has been shoveled.
What did you think I was talking about?!
