- Ice Storm 2009 Arkansas Missouri Oklahoma - Real Photos and Poem
In 2009, a major ice storm hit Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and other surrounding states. The damage to property and to the human heart was devastating. I've tried to capture a small piece of that time with photos and poetry.
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.
