Niveous night... A leafless tree about the height of a basketball hoop was accidentally severed by a snowplow moldboard. Skeletal branches crashed to a hunchbacked blanket of sparkling winterland. A man rushed out the door to check on the operator. The snow removalist was unharmed and while pulling away she said that the city would be obliged to replant another tree. The family man somberly searched within the tangled heap to find a single pink blossom.
