RAIN, SLEET–THEN REPEAT

This forecast isn’t nice,

Rain, sleet and ice…

Roads are slick

So get home quick,

Before roads are compromised!

“HEINZ-57” WEATHER

“HEINZ-57” WEATHER

Don’t want to complain my friends,

But New England weather tends…

To often be

Full of variety,

Whatever the overcast sends.

This morning we started with rain,

Snow flakes and sleet once again…

Often all three

In waves like the sea,

The morning a dreary refrain.

It stopped in the afternoon,

The sunlight made its way out soon…

Our roads will have dried

By my midnight ride,

Any black ice well-lit by the moon!

HOT TO TROT?

HOT TO TROT?

The rain forecast for last night

In these parts is not in sight…

Most “hottened” tots

Are in A.C.-ed spots,

Temperature’s as high as a kite!

FIRST STORM DRIVE

FIRST STORM DRIVE

 

I know how West Virginians felt after Sandy,

Before starting out I felt randy…

Nervous of this time,

An ice-and snow climb,

When rain froze, would be a real dandy!

Starting out it was almost pretty,

Main Street was wet and gritty…

One Forty-Six North

We all sallied forth,

It really slowed down near the city!

Bumper-to-bumper, three lanes,

The weaving ones trying to make gains…

The only one moving

Was the “fast” lane, behooving

My moving into that lane.

Overall it took two hours, plus,

Normally forty minutes, no fuss…

With most of the time

Within city lines,

Going home will see a frozen crust!
