They shouted, "This one's going to be a BEAST!"
Stories surfaced of hurricanes of the past.
The news reporters were here and in their glory,
Category 1 or 2 where everything could take flight.
Or maybe, just maybe it would stay off shore,
And really be a lot of hype, and just a snore.
We awoke to see what might have been uprooted,
The strength of the non-storm might have been disputed,
But as I looked outside to see in the early dawn,
I noticed all of 3 twigs had fallen on my lawn.
