Alert. There is an ice storm warning across the Land of Oz today.
Ice encircles each branch and leaf
And for the moment
Time is frozen
Which leads to this thought?
Give me shelter
From the ice storm
But where do the birds go?
When, in an ice storm
Even the squirrels know to hide
Inside the tree
It is 32 degrees outside, O degrees celsius. Equilibrium. What is so magical about water that at that exact temperature, atoms stop their random association and like good soldiers on the field line up in perfect precision, waiting for one degree of heat to give the order to dismiss?
