The big Alaska tease

The weather turns cold. The snow creeps down the mountains. Every day I wake up and wonder if today will be the day that snow covers the ugly remnants of my summer lawn and flowers. But Mother Nature is sometimes nothing more than a big tease… she coyly turns the sky a steel grey, blows the leaves off the trees and turns the ground to frost every morning. Yet still no snow. Girls who were considered teasers in my generation did not have a nice reputation. I wonder if Mother Nature is aware of this?
