Carved right into the side of a mountain, Clearwater, Wyoming had always received a lot of snow, but this storm would put the most seasoned residents to a test. It was expected to stall over the area and last four to five days, dumping up to ten feet of snow.

As she placed the wood next to the fireplace, she didn’t hear the front door shut and someone call out. Not expecting anyone, she’d played the radio louder than normal.She wanted to hear it as she worked.

“Ahem.” She jumped to her feet. “Do you always ignore paying customers?”

The voice was unfamiliar. She gripped a log and was ready to swing at the intruder.

“I see the hospitality continues. Are you really prepared to beat away a customer? It would seem to me you are in need of some as the place is empty.” A man stood in the living-room doorway. His clothes were rumpled as though he’d slept in them and his voice harsh with a touch of annoyance.
