“Can’t we go out and play in it?” Drag looked at me with that hopeful look.
“No, it’s too cold and the snow is coming down really fast. I don’t think it would be safe even for a baby dragon.” I looked out our big glass door watching the snow cascade.
“I could heat it up with fire like last time.” I could tell Drag really wanted to go explore.
“Last time it got in the news. They thought it was the beginning of a weather disaster. Don’t you remember daddy got really mad.”
“I remember. I was hoping you had forgotten.”
“Oh Drag,” I put my arms around my big pet’s neck, “there will be lots of snow to play in when it stops.”
“Yes plenty and it will be around for days or weeks. Let’s go play an indoor game.”
“Okay, I get to be green…”
Snow days are a challenge when you are trying to raise a dragon in the 21st Century.
