Nor'easter Nicks Nine

by starkat


Nine nervous New England novelists
Embarked on small skiff for England
Seven survived sudden squalls
Six suffered sea sickness
Five fought, and fell in 
Four froze to death
Three threw up

Nor'easters can occur anytime between October and April on the east coast of the US when moisture and cold are plentiful. A nor'easter is named for the winds that blow in from the northeast to drive the storm up the east coast along the Gulf Stream. They are known for dumping heavy amounts of rain and snow, producing hurricane-force winds, and creating high surf that cause severe beach erosion and coastal flooding.
