Texas Freeze

Nobody in Texas owns a snow shovel.
Locals kept on shooting at the snow!

The weather dreadful
To sleet, snow turns rapidly
Numbing and chilly
Utter darkness cloaks the land
There blows the harsh frigid wind
The mercury fell
To points it has never been
Depths before unseen
Soon all the pipes are frozen
In several parts broken
The deluge began
Water oozed like an ocean
In sluggish motion
Thus, all our possessions drenched
Horrified we watched teeth clenched
