    As Julie stood outside of her cabin, she feels a few small, cold gusts of wind on her face; so she decides to go back inside, closing the door behind her.

    The fire in the fireplace, left unattended, had begun to die out. Julie went over to the fireplace, and once again, removed the screen in front of it. She picked up the poker by the fireplace, and managed for a few moments, to stir up a few flames, only to have them die out again.

    Julie *looks over* in the corner, to see if she has any wood left. She does have a few pieces; but if she uses it now, and gets the fire going again, it won't last through the night; and if she burns it now, she won't have any firewood for tomorrow. She puts screen back over the fireplace.

    Julie *walks over* to the door again, and opens it. She walks out onto her porch; and looks around; hoping that she will find a little more firewood; perhaps buried under a little snow; but doesn't find any out there.

    She steps off her porch, into what would be the front-yard area around her cabin, taking a few very careful steps; her boots crunching in the snow.

    There are plenty of trees around; and most of the branches have snow on them. But they all seem to be in-tact; any small twigs, sticks, or branches that may have fallen to the ground...whether by an act of God or man.. are covered by snow, too.

    Julie *sighs a little.* She likes to think she is a resourceful girl; but she is running out of ideas. She *walks back up the steps* and into the cabin; and stepping inside the doorway for a moment, she grabs her duffel bag, that is hanging by the door, and puts it over her right shoulder She closes the door of her cabin again; but this time she locks it behind her.

    Once again, she *walks down the steps.* She doesn't want to impose on her neighbors; but she is amongst friends here, after all. Perhaps they will have some firewood they can give her.

    So, her boots crunching through the snow once again, Julie begins her short, chilly yet scenic trek down the trail to the other cabins. :)

    Jade and her cat,Sam spotted their cabin next to Chase's cabin...it's a kinda small to medium size...Jade notices a clean mini kitchen and a small living room space with an electric fireplace...Sam is happy because there's a big wheel for him so he can exercise,a cat tree,an automatic self cleaning litter box,an automatic feeder and a water fountain.

    Although there's no phone or TV Jade is impressed with a full-size bed in her bedroom and there in the bathroom is a nice sauna steam shower and a bathtub so she can relax after a shower.

    "Oh yeah,this cabin reminds me of home only nicer!" she said. (by the way Jade and Sam bundle up quickly to get there in a hurry.)

    Finally, getting to the end of the trail, Julie heads to the smaller cabin; which is a little closer to hers. If she remembered correctly, it was Jade's cabin.
    Julie walked cautiously, yet quickly as she approached the cabin. As she walked up the steps, towards the door, she looked for any signs that Jade and her cat, Sam were already there.

    Julie stops and stands at the door; *knocks* and *yells* in a fairly loud voice,
    "Hello, Jade? Is anyone home?" :)

    Jade listens in on her hand-held radio she brought in to listen for an alert for snow storm watch or warning while listening to any music except for hip-hop,heavy metal or honky-tonk country...

    When all the sudden Sam saw Julie...
    Jade opens the door and there stood Julie "Hey Julie,won't you come in?" Jade asked "I'm listening to the radio just in case of a snow storm watch or warning in our area."

    Julie *stomps her feet a little, to knock some of the snow off her boots, before coming in the door.* "Thanks, Jade," Julie says, as she closes the door behind her.

    Julie said, "I came here to ask if you have any firewood here. The fireplace in my cabin is not electric, and if I burn the small amount of firewood that I have tonight, I won't have any for tomorrow."

    Julie *joked a little* and said, "I know I'm hot-blooded, and everything... but still.. I can tell it's getting worse out there. The air is still cold...but now the wind is gusting a little.. stirring up the snow that's already there.. so, if we get some snow, I won't be surprised at all." :)

    "Julie,just ask Chase if he has any firewood for your fireplace." said Jade while her cat,Sam enjoys his tuna entree pate Jade found while looking around the kitchen.

    "Otherwise you can share with others with their fireplace heated up in their own cabin or you can sleep here in a sleeper sofa that comes with the cabin me and Sam are staying in I was about to fix a cup of hot tomato soup for dinner no spoon required."

    Julie says, "Well... I really don't want to impose on you.. but it is going to be dark soon... and I don't want to be caught outside, if the weather does get worse. I will ask Chase or someone else for some firewood tomorrow, I promise."

    The cabin is warm; and whatever snow was still on Julie melted and evaporated in the time that Julie has been standing there. *Julie takes her duffel bag off her right shoulder and hangs it up on a hook by the door. She takes off her long winter coat with the hood; revealing her red mock turtleneck and blue jeans. She hangs her coat off, and hangs it next to her duffel bag. She takes off her gloves; unzips the hood of her coat, and puts her gloves inside the pocket and zips it up. She looks around; she goes over, and unzips her bag; and takes out a pair of lace-less white tennis shoes. She goes and sits by a little bench that is near the coat hooks; she sits down, and unlaces her high insulated high winter boots; takes them off, and slips on the tennis shoes. Julie goes back into her duffel bag; and takes out her purse; putting it over her shoulder.*

    Walking to the kitchen, Julie *looks for something to eat. She makes a grilled cheese sandwich, using Swiss cheese, and puts it on a small plate on the kitchen counter. She looks through the cupboards and finds one of the little soups; this one, vegetable beef; and warms it up. Letting it cool for a moment; Julie goes over to the fridge. and gets a raspberry flavored drink with no caffeine that has vitamins, zinc, and electrolytes. Julie sits down at the kitchen counter. She reaches into her purse, and takes out her cell phone, and puts it on the counter. She takes out a small silver pill box; and takes it out of her purse. She takes the cap off her drink; and opens the pill box; she takes out a small, round, white pill; and puts it in her mouth; and has a little of her drink. She sits and eats her food.*

    Jade set up the sleeper sofa and turn it into a bed for Julie and then Jade opens the storage closet there she grab an warm wool blanket..."Bed's ready,Julie!" she said "And Sam would you mind keep Julie company for tonight?"

    Sam,Jade's cat meowed "Thank you,Sam you're my purr-fect best friend...Good night,Julie!"

    As Jade goes and gets ready for bed...hoping nothing happens tomorrow to anyone like Carmen,Chase,Invader,Kid or anyone getting caught in the blizzard at least she listens in for winter storm watch or warnings on her radio that is.

    Julie says, "Good might, Jade. Thanks again, and I hope you sleep well."

    After she finishes her food, Julie *cleans up after herself; putting the empty plastic drink bottle in the recycling bin. She looks in the cabinet under the sink, and finds a little dishwashing liquid; she turns on the curved stainless steel faucet, and uses a washcloth to wash the small plate in the farm sink in the counter. She puts the clean, but wet plate in the dish drainer on the counter, by the sink.*

    Julie *picks up her phone, and leaves the kitchen, turning off the light as she leaves.* She goes back into the living room area. She puts her cell phone on a small table that is at one end of the couch,* that Jade has very nice pulled out into the sleeper sofa for her. She sits on the bed for a minute; and it seems more comfortable than most similar beds she has slept on. Julie *gets up, and goes over to her duffel bag hanging on the hook. She picks it up, and takes it with her.*

    Julie *sees that the bathroom door open; she turns the light on, and goes inside; leaving the door slightly ajar, out of habit, so that she can hear.

    She puts the duffle bag on a small table in the bathroom, by the door. She takes the ponytail tie out of her hair. She reaches into her bag, and takes out a hair brush; and brushes her long hair a little; braiding it very loosely and putting the tie on the end of it. *takes off her off her glasses*and puts them on the table. She reaches into the bag, and takes out a pair of baby pink, lightweight thermal pajamas, with a Henley-style shirt, with a button placket, scoop-neck, curved longer back hem; and full-length pants, with elastic drawstring waist, and hangs them on the hook on the back of the bathroom door.* Julie puts the lid on the toilet down for a moment, and *sits down, and takes off her tennis shoes.* As she undresses to take a shower, she puts her clothes in her duffle bag.

    She steps into the shower; pulls the shower curtain shut around her. Julie takes her time, washing her hair; and taking a nice, leisurely shower with the products already in bathroom; all of which claim to give a good, thorough cleansing; while being gentle on both skin and hair. Her shower over, Julie turns off the water and *reaches for the towels hanging by the tub and shower. She gently pats herself dry, and wrings out her hair. She looks around briefly; and finds a hair dryer; and uses it the cool setting briefly to finish drying her hair. She brushes her hair again; and puts the ponytail tie in it again. She puts on her pajamas. She *picks up her glasses* and puts them on again.* She reaches into her bag, pulls out a pair of baby pink, ballet-style slippers.* Julie reaches into her bag; and gets out the paperback novel she brought with her. She turns off the bathroom light; and leaves the bathroom door open.

    She walks back in to the living room area; where Sam is waiting for her, on curled up by the fireplace. Julie says, "You're a good boy, Sam. I'm sorry to keep you up. You can get on the bed with me, in a minute, if you want."

    *Julie gets in bed; taking off her slippers*and leaves them by the bed.
    She checks her phone one last time for any important messages; and is relieved when she doesn't find any. She finishes reviewing the info she was looking at about T-Rex dinosaurs.

    Then she reaches over the novel she been reading; a romance novel called "Younger" by Pamela Redmond Satran, about Alice Miller; a recently divorced 40 yr. old mother of a teenage daughter, Caitlan, who is studying abroad in India. Alice must figure out a way to support herself and her daughter after her ex-husband David, left them in a financial hole due to his gambling addiction; losing all their savings and their house; Alice moves in with her best friend, Maggie. Following her ambitions from college, Alice tries to get a job in publishing; but that proves difficult for a woman of her age. During her job hunt, Alice meets a 26 year-old tattoo-artist named Josh, who thinks they are the same age. So, Maggie gives Alice a makeover, so that Alice can pass herself off as 26. Ultimately, Alice becomes an assistant to Diana Trout, at a small publishing house called Emperical Press. She becomes friends with a 2o-something year-old woman and continues to lie about her age.

    Julie *reads a little* but then, starts to fall asleep. She *takes off her glasses* and *turns off the light.* She whispers her prayers; remembering family and pets at home in Ohio; friends and fellow ACME and VILE agents too. :)

    Invader sits on the sofa, and can hear the wind outside starting to pick up a bit, sounded like a storm was on the way. Their shoulder was also starting to get a prickling sensation, in turn. Carefully they started to knead it, trying to get it to settle down, unsuccessfully. This was going to be a long night, they shifted slightly, trying to get more comfortable, and not disturb the others.
