Story will run tomorrow...but mostly elderly residents of the Ramona Estates Terrace won't have gas until Christmas Eve.
It's damn cold...you know if you live there. These folks will appreciate a hot anything. And yes, the Red Cross has set a shelter and all that. I just filed. I was wearing a winter coat and heavy boots...it is cold.
.......... come closer
Shut softly your watery eyes
The pangs of your sadness
Will pass as your senses will rise
The flowers of the city
Though breathlike, get deathlike at times
And there's no use in tryin'
To deal with the dyin'
Though I cannot explain that in lines.
