Down to the lake, or up towards Mount Shaw. Made no difference either way, none of these folks would have made it very far in this weather. They‟d gone though. All of them.

A continent swept clean for the new tenants. ‟ The Doctor held up a hand and let a few of the flakes spatter harmlessly in his palm.
