Winter of 2014


Season of discontent


Treacherous beauty


to powder power

Wonderland nightmare

Resort’s dream

People scream

Skiing skylines

Highway die lanes

Selling bylines

Derailed trains

Frozen flights

heated patrons

Delayed hopes

reality cancelled

Comic relief

tabloid fodder

swollen-tongue daughter

licking frozen pole

Selfies in snow

Winter-hawk crowed

Grief overload

infrastructure let-down

collision toll

outage of power

death tally

by the hour

slow your roll



buried alive

town cut-off

It’s not voodoo

It’s no hex

Only the foolish scoff

at the Polar Vortex
