I enjoyed the dry humor in contrast to the harrowing conditions.

Very good interaction between the brothers.  Nice descriptive writing.

Well done.

This is a wonderfully written story, Krys! Even though it's the middle of spring, I could feel the cold winds of winter whipping through my bedroom as I read it. I could see the boys pacing about and their worry about Ben was palpable. This peek into the C's lives just added another layer to what we see on the show--the boys love their pa so much that sometimes stupidity overwhelms their common sense.

I'll definitely reread this one around the holiday season later this year. Thanks for sharing!

"Adam's always very cautious, he wouldn't do anything stupid like coming out to look for me...." Apparently not. :D 

I've greatly enjoyed your longer stories in the past, and this short one didn't disappoint. I appreciate your more serious treatment of winter weather--something that would certainly have been a reality for the Cartwrights. The opening scene with the arguing brothers was very good, and I think I know exactly the face you mean when you say Adam's "thin smile." 

It also makes me smile that everybody unanimously thinks Joe will blow away if he sets foot in a snowstorm. 

Thank you for an enjoyable story! 

Author's Response:

Many thanks for your review, PP, at the moment I am experiencing much the same kind of weather as in the story.  ML beefed up to quite a hunk in later episodes didn't he?  I reckon he could have handled himself OK but he was just a wee thing at the time of this story...😉

Great description of being out in the blizzard.   All of this sounds exactly like the Cartwrights.  Thanks for the story.

Author's Response:

A pleasure, Elizabeth ... very pleased you enjoyed the story.  Currently enduring this kind of weather here ...:)

You certainly can't blame sons for worrying about their father. I'm relieved that Ben was sensible! 

Author's Response:

Yep, Ben was indeed sensible, a pity his sons were not quite so much but had to learn the hard way ..thank you for reading and leaving a review, Tracy

Adam was smart to turn back when he did. As for Ben, it turned out that he was the most sensible of all! Thanks for a terrific story! 

Author's Response:

Oh yes, love your conclusion...Ben certainly was the most sensible of the four! Thank you, littlejoenice

Solid characterisations of all the Cartwrights.   A difficult decision for Adam, well all the boys to make - the contention between the brothers and the balance between doing what's right, expected and sensible was not always what the boys were able to keep on an even keel.

Adam's harrowing moment in the snow scene was chilling visual. 

Glad that Pa was in fact in the safe with the Rileys. 

Author's Response:

Thank yiu, Ansinico..characterisation is so important in fan fiction so I really appreciate your comment here.

Great story, Krys!  I love how Ben's sons are so concerned about him that they're willing to risk their lives for him...even if they finally realize that venturing out into that blizzard is a terrible idea that won't help their father.  I love the description in the part where Adam goes out into the blizzard; I felt as though I were out in that blizzard myself just reading the description!

Author's Response:

Definitely the wrong decision for Adam to have made, wasn't it?  Thank you for leaving a review for he...
