Winter is here and it's cold. Where I live we have to wear socks. But, where many people live, winter can be a matter of life and death. There are lots of good stories of cold weather survival. One of my favorite short stories is Jack London's "To Build A Fire." If you've ever watched the any Creek Stewart's survival shows on The Weather Channel, you'll see how serious cold weather can get. A wrong turn, a snowmobiling accident, or a sudden change in the weather can lead to disaster. For today's writing prompt, write a story about --
being stranded in snow, ice, and frigid temperatures.
