The Ice Storm
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Eric snuggled down under the warm blankets ready to roll over and go back to sleep, but something wasn't quite right. He glanced over at the alarm clock, but he couldn't see the lighted numbers. It must have come unplugged, he thought. Then he noticed that the air seemed colder than usual as well.
 
2     "Psssst," Eric whispered to his older brother, Don, whose bed was against the other wall. "Are you awake?"
 
3     Don pulled the blanket higher under his chin and rolled over. "Go back to sleep, Eric, you always get up too early."
 
4     Eric waited until he heard his parents moving around. Then he jumped out of bed, put on his slippers and robe, and went to the dark kitchen.
