Snow

Snow covered much of the known world for over a generation.

Soon scientists and government agencies reported their findings – including photographs. The snow was receding. All were fascinated by their findings. Young people began doubting everything they thought they knew while the old sat back and smiled. There, buried under the snow, was proof of the life they remembered – a life before the endless snow.
