100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#63-Winters Spell

The prompt this week is:… and winter will bring …As usual you have 100 words to add to these 4.

Winters Spell
Big fat snowflakes the size of bumblebees floated down from the blue-grey winter sky. I stuck my tongue out to catch one before it melted. Swirls and swirls of white lace danced around, sticking to me like prickly cactus needles. 
The snow grew heavier and I panicked. I couldn't see where I was. The beautiful snowflakes turned into snow monsters. I tried to run, but slipped and fell into a snow drift. I couldn't move. Snow covered me like a thick, woolen blanket. Ominous, dark clouds replaced fluffy white cotton balls. A blizzard now replaced dainty snowflakes. I was lost forever...and winter will bring death.

Lovely imagery: the bumblebees, the swirls of lace. And the drawing is beautiful too.
