Take Me Home, Country Roads
Have you heard the song, ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’?
I really love singing the song.
It was written and sang by John Denver.
The song is about the country roads in West Virgina.
It tells us about the beautiful mountains and the Shenadoah River.
I have been on the country roads in Ohio, New York and the Mid-West but not in West Virginia.
I wish that I can go to West Virginia and see the beautiful places as in the song.
We planned to go to Washington DC and to West Virginia this summer but we could not go there because of Influenza A(H1N1).
I hope I can go to West Virginia next year 😉
Deadly Ice and Snow Storm Cut Swath Across US
There is a very bad ice and snow storm across the United States.
At least 17 people died in the Midwest.
Trees fell on power lines so there is no electricity in lots and lots and lots of houses.
Some school are closed because it is dark and too much snow so people cannot go out side.
There are lots of accident because the roads are too slippery.
It is hard to walk out side because it is icy and too slippery.
Anyway the ice on the trees look so beautiful.
There is lots of snow in Ohio and I think there is a lot of snow outside Uncle Arif’s house in Columbus.
CHICAGO (AFP) – Hundreds of thousands of people were left shivering in the dark after a massive ice and snow storm cut a swath across the United States Wednesday, knocking down power lines, snarling traffic, grounding flights and forcing schools to close.
Freezing rain on the southern end of the storm covered trees and bridges with brilliant ice crystals but made roads incredibly slick and dangerous from Texas to Pennsylvania.
At least a dozen deaths were reported.
The northern side of the snow dumped as much as a foot (30 centimeters) of snow in some areas of Ohio and the US east coast.
And with a cold front moving in behind the storm it could be days before the ice melts and weeks before all the damage is repaired, officials warned.
Bitter cold to linger across U.S. through weekend
It is freezing in U.S.A. now.
It must be very, very ,very, very cold.
I read in CNN that it may get colder later.
The wind is very, very, very, very cold too.
In some places in U.S.A. you’ll get frozen if you play out side.
So you can’t make snowman in the garden.
There are lots and lots and lots and lots of snow.
But maybe there is no snowman 🙂
There is lots of snow in Ohio too.
I don’t want to go to Uncle Arif’s house now because it is freezing.
I hope Uncle Arif is not frozen in the snow.
I think everybody’s car is frozen in the snow because it is very, very, very cold.
I like to go to Applefest because I like to eat apples.
I like the sweet apples and I like the sour apples too.
I went to Applefest in Sidney, Ohio in September 2006.
There were lots of apples at the Applefest.
I saw red apples, green apples and yellow apples.
I ate apple sauce too.
They made apple butter at the Applefest.
I like apple butter too but apple butter does not taste like butter.
I saw a play at the Applefest.
They were other fruits and vegetables too.
I saw old cars show.
There were lots of beautiful old cars.
I like to go apple picking.
When I go apple picking I pick apple.
I pick the big red apple.
When I pick the apples, I eat the apples at the orchard.
I went apple picking in Ohio and Palo Alto, California.
When I eat apples over there, I will say mmmmmmmmm
The apples are so sweet.
I love apples very, very, very much.
And I like to buy apples too.
Do you like to eat apple too?
