From between NY and Detroit

We didn't see the northeast's Snowmageddon, but it delayed a lot of flights.  Our lift out of Elmira was delayed and there was no way for us to get home to Little Rock tonight.  Delta gave us some meal vouchers and is putting us up in a Clariton.  We'll have to be up at 4:00 am tomorrow morning to make it home a day late.  Here are a few Haiku poems written above NY during our flight between Elmira and Detroit.

Above Finger Lakes
The glacier-carved troughs in Earth
Are valley gutters.

The north from above
An icy gray patchwork quilt
Anything but soft.

New York winterized
Like a cold, crunchy pretzel
With way too much salt.
