Frankenstorm

There was no charm.
Nothing upbeat in any of this.

They’d forecast for days
that this rotten thing was on its way.
Seeing this, many folks flee straight away
others though, too old or stubborn, stay.

Key elements were all in place to enable
this event
warm sea swelling up from the depths
tumultuous skies
winds strengthening, more and more

too late to scramble then when
Sandy’s wrath finally came upon shore.

*Never in my life time have I known a single storm with winds that reached out for over 1,000 miles. I know that many of our Power line workers from the Maritimes have gone south to help the USA with getting their power lines back up and running again.
With this unpredictable climate change, it could happen to any of us, anytime.
