Pretty, but Dangerous to Power Lines and Drivers!
Evergreens catch the drops.
Encased in ice, branches droop.
Zzzzzz! I go back to sleep.
I awake to the sound of branches breaking.
No power, as utility lines snap
Go get another blanket.
Refrigerator full of lukewarm food
And no prospect of a hot shower,
I pull the covers over my head;
Now to dream of summer.
What Creates Freezing Rain?
