Freezing Rain: An Acrostic Poem

Updated on December 28, 2017

Pretty, but Dangerous to Power Lines and Drivers!

Ice builds up on an evergreen branch.

Freezing Rain

Frosty morning,
Rain begins.
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?
