The airport has been hit by the worst storm in years. It had already lasted for three days. Now troubles, like spots on a sick weakened body, were beginning to break out everywhere. A truck carrying two hundred dinners was lost in the snow somewhere on an airport service road, and so far the search for it had been unsuccessful. At least a hundred flights were delayed, some by many hours. Mel Bakersfeld was surprised that the airport was still open. Mel was the airport general manager. He was a tall, powerful man. At the moment, he was standing by the Snow Control Desk, high in the control tower. Usually, you could see the entire airport from here. Tonight, you could see only a few lights. This was an unusually hard winter. The storm had started five days ago in the Colorado Mountains and then swept across a large part of the United States.
