Areas of 0 returned from intersect tool

I am trying to pull area and length from the SHAPE@ object in an in memory file.  When a feature is split into 2 features after the intersect, the area is zero!  Any ideas?

        legal_sr_sec= arcpy.SpatialReference('NAD 1983 UTM Zone 13N')
        arcpy.env.outputCoordinateSystem = legal_sr_sec
        arcpy.Intersect_analysis([sections, feature], "in_memory\\sections_join")
        desc=arcpy.Describe("in_memory\\sections_join")
        if desc.shapeType == "Polygon":
            with arcpy.da.UpdateCursor("in_memory\\sections_join",["SHAPE@"]) as uc:
                for row in uc:
                    geom=row[0]
                    area=geom.getArea()
                    length=geom.getLength()
                    arcpy.AddMessage(area)
                    AtoL_num=float(area/length)
                    if AtoL_num < 1:
                        uc.deleteRow()
