Set the scene: Time to Write challenge 14 Dec

Here we go with Rachel’s prompt this week:

I don’t believe this.’ Alison said. ‘It’s April and we’ve got three feet of snow outside!’
‘Shame it’s the weekend, could do with some time off.’ Dan replied.
‘Schools will be shut. Shops will be ransacked and deliveries delayed. What shall we do?’
‘Make a snow man of course! Come on.’
The pair donned their outdoor weather gear and boots and went outside.
It was pleasantly warm, so the snow wasn’t going to last very long and they intended to make the most of it.
The main road was a mass of white, not a single tyre track on it.
John and Rita waved from number 2.
‘Got the same idea!’
A snowball hit Dan dead centre of his back.
He turned to see Cyril at number 8 taking aim with another.
‘Oh no you don’t!’ Dan laughed, and scooped up a fistful himself.
‘Girls versus boys!’ yelled Alice joining in the fray.
Inside, fingers were frantically tapping on keypads and ipods.
All of the kids agreed that the white stuff had made their parents flip.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Good one. The kids would be inside on their devices and adults playing outside.
