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!
