Smorgasbord Short Stories – Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction – Buried in the Snow by Sally Cronin

Charli Mills has had a frustrating week, with snow storms combined with technology issues. You can read about her adventures this week in her update.

As there have been so many issues, Charli will not be doing the Flash Fiction compilation this week, but has given us a prompt anyway, appropriate considering the circumstances.

Buried in the Snow

The elderly farmer and his dog stood at the base of the hillside and searched the snow covered slope for signs of the flock. His grandson, swaddled against the biting cold, reached out to tug on the old man’s sleeve.

‘Granddad, how are we going to find the sheep, they must all be buried under those drifts?’ The boy looked close to tears.

‘Just wait, lad, just wait.’ He patted the boys head.

Just then a dark shape moved amongst the white mounds and the farmer smiled.

‘That’s why you always have a black sheep in your flock boy.’

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at
