Snowed In Excerpt:
Dragon yawned and stretched, feeling fully rested and ready to start the day. Quiet filled the cozy cave. Usually Dragon could hear the forest animals scurrying about getting their breakfast. Dragon smiled, picturing the squirrels digging up a filling breakfast, and wondered whether the squirrels had already eaten today. Then Dragon realized it was also darker in the cave than usual. Was it cloudy? Maybe it was snowing. Dragon hurried to the cave’s entrance to see what fun today would bring. Then Dragon realized why it was so quiet and dark. From the floor to the ceiling of the entrance to the cave, fluffy snow had piled up. The snow glowed softly, as light filtered through. Dragon sighed, and took a deep breath, in and out. Before Dragon could play with the forest animals, the snow would need to be moved.
