“That cloud in the sky does not look good,” said Mountain Kid.
Mountain Kid was outside of his log cabin. He was putting his tools away because he had been working on his truck in his driveway.
“I’d better get these tools put away,” said Mountain Kid. “It looks like a bad winter storm is rolling in.”
Mountain Kid picked up all his tools and then he made sure he had lots of firewood in the cabin. He just brought in the last armload when it started to snow.
“This could be a big storm that could last for a few days,” said Mountain Kid. “I think this is going to be a good day to stay indoors and stay safe.”
Mountain Kid put some logs onto the fire and then he thought that it would be a perfect day to make a hearty beef stew.
“I will make a huge pot of it,” said Mountain Kid. “That way I can have it for dinner tonight and then have some leftovers over the next few days.”
Mountain Kid cut up some beef, onions, potatoes and carrots. He put all the ingredients in a dry pot and put it on a low boil. He could smell the stew boiling all day long and it was driving him crazy. However, he didn’t want to eat anything until it was ready. He wanted to have a nice big bowl of his winter stew.
“That hit the spot,” said Mountain Kid, after dinner. “That was the best stew ever.”
The winter storm lasted for 48 hours. Mountain Kid was able to stay safe and warm. He also enjoyed his big pot of winter stew.
