Sir Thomas awoke pondering reality and the mistakes he made with planning for winter and survival. He found California relatively miserable as a work place and was so excited to get back to the Pacific Northwest, he didn’t calculate how snow, winter weather, and work opportunities would affect sustainability for his family. Lady Etain wasn’t finding work. Sales were almost non-existent online. Ponderings as they peered out the door of the Cliffhanger to see more inches of snow fall. Their pavillions for vending still buried in the snow. Difficulties in planning for the upcoming future. Levels of sadness and what one could only define as ‘depression’ lurking over the family. But bright hopes of the snow and cold weather to disappear. They spent the day in, organizing stuff, working on photos, job applications, and game plans for upcoming Spring. That night, movies and burgers were had before sleep.
