The Ice Storm

ice ice babyStormy McBlizzardton &

The Accu-Weather Rangers

Say an awful

Ice storm

Is on

Its way.

The power

Might go out.

Driving will be

Quite dangerous.

Apocal-ice now.

They warn me

To stay inside.

Why would

I ever leave

The House on the Hill?

penguinI’m not

A penguin,

That can glide

On its belly

On the ice.

I am a klutz.

King Klutz

To be precise.

I will wait out

The ice storm

Inside my bunker.

Flashlight and

Candles nearby.

ice stormNo need for me

To enter

The fray.

Ice, ice, baby…

It’s not for me.

About Austin

Native New Yorker who's fled to the quiet life in Maine. I write movies, root for the Yankees, and shovel lots of snow.

      I’m charging my phone, pumping the heat a little more to warm the place in case we lose power, and there are tons of candles. Just hope none of that is necessary.

    My dog doesn’t have booties on and the trip back to the doorstep was in record time. I can settle down only for a moment but when the pager goes off I will be breaking ice. Stay safe Austin

    Can you bring Gary in? I know he doesn’t mind the snow, but it seems kinda sad to think of him dripping with icicles.

    • Austin says:

      He loves it up there. Says he is in his element. Thinks he looks all bad ass with the sheet of ice over him and the icicles hanging off his head. He’s a tough Gargoyle that Gary… 🙂

  7. Take good care. My drive to visit friends yesterday, took me to the fringes of this icy weather phenomenon. It was on the move–from west to east.
