The word of the day from https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/author/cyranny/ is sleet.
Falling in watery ice, the sleet wasn’t going to stay on the ground.
All she wanted was snow, something to make her little girl smile again. It had been two years since they built a family out of snow. It was all Barbara thought about. She was two the last time it snowed, still talked about the angels.
She thought, when life gives lemons, or sleet, there is still the chance for fun.
Woollen hats, scarves and warm coats, they rushed outside, as large chunks of snow fell onto the dry ground. Within a few minutes the snow settled like a comfortable blanket on a cold day.
‘Mummy, it’s snowing!’ she said.
‘Yes, do you want to build a snowman?’
‘Bring your mobile, that way we can keep our snowman.’
