It’s Christmas Eve and there is a blizzard. The children are excited
(Christmas Eve afternoon. SUZY, JOHN, and YOUNG VICKY run on from the outside, they’re wearing coats and hats and boots and gloves. They brush off some “snow.” They’re all talking at once.) KIDS: Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!
JOHN: (Overlapping:) Did you see all the snow out there?!
YOUNG VICKY: (Overlapping:) It’s white everywhere!
SUZY: (Overlapping:) White snow! We made snow angels!
YOUNG VICKY: It just keeps coming. You can’t even see the road.
JOHN: Good thing Daddy left with the farmers so early, or else he never would’ve got out.
SUZY: Look, Mommy, look!
(MRS. AUSTIN gets up and looks out the window.)
MRS. AUSTIN: Looks like the road already filled up again. My, it looks like a blizzard out there.
YOUNG VICKY: Maybe that’s Daddy, saying he’s coming home early!
