Frozen Mass Threatens Dalton

Oh no, my nephew's
in trouble!
Best let my sister know.
Oh, the Dalton HIGHWAY,
aka the Haul Road
to Prudhoe Bay.
A moving mass of
frozen debris
(my ex-boyfriend?)
is sliding toward the road
and the trans-Alaska pipeline.
Can't decide which name
I like best:
giant blob or
frozen debris lobe?
it's mean and
it's moving.

Anchorage Daily News,  June 24, 2014
"The road is about 140 feet from the leading edge of the debris - a frozen accumulation of sand, gravel, rock, silt, old pieces of wood, ice and other materials that continue to puzzle scientists."
