Spit goes 'clink'

Sleigh bells ring
are you listening?
In the lane
snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight ..

Whoa there!

You know why the snow is glistening?  It's because the temperature warmed up from gawd-damn it's cold to just below the freezing point of water.  Then as it got dark the temperature dropped to spit goes 'clink' and all of that slushy water on top of the snow pack - and on the streets and the sidewalks - turned to glistening ice and it's worth your life to walk to your mailbox and back.

Winter wonderland my foot.

Title hat-tip.
