Welcome to this week’s Thursday Writing Prompt. I resisted the impulse to post a snow picture because I think more than a few of us are sick of the cold weather. But what would happen if we were permanently stuck with this weather? Suppose you lived on a planet where this is the way it is all the time. Winter isn’t just coming; it’s here. And it’s here to stay.

Write a short description of a planet where this weather pattern is the norm. Assuming the inhabitants have similar needs to us as far as their needs for air, water, food, and warmth, what adaptations would they have made to deal with their planet’s climate? Do they have something like cars, or do they use sleds? Flying machines? Are they that advanced?
