Prompt for February 10, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

The snow, blinding in it’s intensity, covered the path in a thick carpet of white. Lily, used to the white powdery snow of home, was unused to this heavier snow and her footsteps faltered as the weight of the snow pushed back at her.  Her jeans were hard shells around her legs as the snow, partially melted by the heat of her effort, soaked into her pant legs and refroze.  Additional snow piled on her legs causing a white shell to form around her legs both protecting her from the snow and preventing her from being able to walk as the weight of her legs increased step by step.  She continued walking with all of her earthly belongings held in a knapsack on her back and all of her memories trapped in the scars on her body.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
