Instead of waiting for Eugene to join her, she's thrown on some clothing and darted out the door as fast as the ridiculous heels on her dressy winter shoes will let her. She greatly suspects that there's a conspiracy to slow her down by keeping her in heels.
The soft, mushy ground isn't making this trek any easier, and the wet snow is melting right through her layers of clothing! You can't make snow angels in this stuff, all it can do is get you wet!
Several fumbled attempts later, she's finally made some headway in climbing a tree.
The princess of Corona pulls herself up, ignoring Eugene's distant calls. If he'd hurried up when she ran through the palace earlier screaming about how it was snowing, he would be here instead of wondering where she'd gone.
Rapunzel rests her arm on a snow-covered branch as she takes in the view. Far below, she hears Eugene squawk in alarm as he finally spots her far up the tree. She ignores his complaints for the moment as she appreciates the sight of the distant fields, which look like a vast lacy tablecloth spread to the horizon.
"Eugene!" she shouts at last, forgetting her disappointment with the first snow of winter and his tardiness. "Have you seen this? The whole world is covered up in a big doily!"
It's only after he's climbed up to take a look for himself that she allows herself to be coaxed down and back into the palace for a steaming hot mug of cocoa.
Ah, winter snowfall in Oklahoma. It never fails to disappoint. And now an outtake, where Rapunzel's overly-layered clothing makes her not only look like a Pokemon trainer, but actually triggers a fateful encounter in the tall grass!
|"I don't have any pokeballs or food!"|
Anyway, that's our story. Not really worth the wait, but at least it's an update, right? Now back to watching the snow melt.
|Brrr... How can it be so cold, but not cold enough for the snow to stick!?|
