We had some very strange weather overnight. Let’s see…at 9 pm the temp was -2º C with light freezing rain and everything was covered in a heavy layer of ice. By midnight the temp had climbed to +11º C with heavy pouring rain and over the next few hours the heavy accumulation of ice just melted away. By 6 am almost all of the ice was gone, the rain had stopped and the temp had plummeted back down to -6º C with high winds and intermittent bouts of fine snow. If I hadn’t checked the forecast I would have woken this morning to temps colder than when I went to bed and I would have been completely baffled about the disappearance of so much ice.
A sad and soggy budda.

Water, gaseous, liquid and solid, the Buddha has experienced all of them in a short period of time.
Marcus Ranum says
All weather buddha is serene
As is the dog that pauses to
cock a leg toward him
Buddha is. Like the weather, Buddha just is.
Went from 10 C / 50 F to -10 C / 15 F overnight, accompanied by much wind. Glad that the ice is gone for both you and me.
I love comments in Haiku!
