Abstract: Just now, it was deeply dark still, and there would be no visible ball of sun for a few weeks yet. But it was after eight, and in a half hour or so there would be enough light to suit him, to let him go safely into the wooded area that lay under eight or nine feet of snow, glazed and crusty old snow. The trees knew the weather so well that the lowest branches which appeared in summer were nearly fifteen feet off the ground, and the animals would forage a toll of any even that close when they had more snow to stand on. He regretted for a second the oil he had wasted reading last night, although he seemed to have enough to last until late May. Then, the light would be better, and he would snowshoe the thirty miles into Whitehorse. But to him enough to last meant a good reserve, a trump card against this spiel of Nature that let him get along just fine, but only on Her terms, with no room for slips. He had known this place to be thumped and slammed by blizzards as late as May.
