“Jack, I have everything packed in the van now,” Wanda said.

“What is all that stuff in the box?” he inquired.

“Oh! Just extra food, water, blankets, battery heater, and a flashlight.”

“We are only traveling a few hundred miles, not making a trip to the moon!”

“Well, you know the old saying, ‘ it’s better safe, than sorry’ and I like to prepare for unknown circumstances.”

After traveling for two hundred miles in what turned out a blizzard, they had trouble with the van pulled over to the side of the road, called for service, told it would be several hours before anyone could come, and Jack said, “Wanda, you are a life-saver, we need the stuff in the box.”

  1. Really great “stuff”. Wanted more. I would follow Jack and Wanda in their van, in the blizzard facing the storm with their box of stuff. Nicely done.


    • I just heard on the TV that there are dozens of vehicles stuck on the highway. I hope they have warm clothing on, and plenty of gasoline in their vehicle. Being hungry is one thing, but if you are cold, that is even worse.

  2. Wow quite an eventful day. I think it is down right awful to break your arm after all these bees have stung you. But you could be allergic and then the broken arm wouldn’t matter and there would be two dead bodies. Hopefully, your character wasn’t allergic! Great job using those words.


  3. Wow! And to think that terrible storm has hit out east yesterday. Someone stole out earthquake preparedness box out the trunk. One of us left the door unlocked 😛 It’s not easy restocking it but worth it. I know this from living through many hurricanes, and no power, in New Orleans.
    Great piece – he owes her a brandy!


  4. Thank you, glad you enjoyed it. We never get snow, but when I travel the two days each week, I make sure I have a few things handy all the time. I never know when I will be sitting in a traffic jam or have to get off the interstate when they have to close it.(happened twice so far and I did not know the back roads)
