Without the forewarning of the noise and earth trembling like before, snow barrels into Cassie and rips her away. I can’t believe it, one second she was there reaching for me with her fur collar caressing her cheek, the next she was gone.
Trapped with people you barely know.

“It’s okay. It’s okay,” Randy reassures me in my ear as the snow keeps coming.
The crashing and thudding echoes in the riot of the unnatural blizzard that surrounds us. The waves of snow continue on and on, violently.
When it appears to have stopped, I finally looked out at our buried surroundings. Luckily, the boulder had created a barrier. In the small area below it, we survived. The rock didn’t crush us, and the snow didn’t bury us.
I notice though that snow is still coming, thick and fluffy. The sky has become very dark, confusing daytime and evening.
“Is that residual from the avalanche?” I ask Randy with an unsteady voice.
“No, I think it’s starting to snow.” He peaks around the boulder checking out the area.
Fear from the avalanche is still lodged in my veins. I rub my hands over my arms hugging myself.
“Dirk told me they were expecting a bad snow to storm tonight.”
“Well,” Randy says looking at the sky. “It didn’t wait for tonight.”
