America, 2015. Technology advances, ever improving. Communities grow and expand. People live out their daily lives, as they normally do, without a second thought. They think this is how it will be forever. That nothing will happen. That their lives aren't going to change, and that they are secured. But, as they keep moving, other parts of the world we know are on pause.
Scottland. 2015. Its a nice place, or it used to be. For some reason, its gotten colder these days, with never ending snow flooding the streets. The snow doesn't melt. Its only building up more. Its gotten to a ridiculous point, really. But its enough to know something is wrong with the climate. In fact, in Antarctica, the same is also happening, only worse. Scientists are up there, researching this storm as it grows, and sending information back to their lab in the States. Of course, no one understands how bad it will proceed to get over the next few days. Or weeks. No one knows that they should be preparing for surviving a cold, cold winter, and a one that last a long time. The scientists may figure it out, but will anyone listen is the problem.
Who knows, really? You will have to find out.
