Here we go again! Another winter storm gripping the USA and all we can do is hunker down and mark off the 16 days until spring begins. Oh, we can also read our friends fiction! Friday Fictioneers is a great place to start. With a measly 100 words we consider a photo offered by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and create a complete story. Mine is a bridge off another piece I called The Secret of Puxatawney Phil.
Sydney didn’t like the new board. Her mural was ruined; over a decade of beauty sabotaged by some ravenous creepy-crawlie creatures. Bart called them termites, Neighbor Bill claimed wood weevils. Sydney didn’t care. She was no longer the artist of 10 years ago. This would break her deal with Puxatawney Phil. The snow and ice would come.
She turned, hearing Bart enter the backyard with his blaring weather radio.
The machine generated voice confirmed the truth she already knew. “We can expect accumulating ice and heavy snow over the Memphis metro area through the next twenty-four hours.”
