We get a mostly wordless strip about how Elly and tobogganing (or anything else remotely fun) are incompatible.

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly grimly shoveling the driveway.

Panel 2: She glowers in rage when she sees Mike carrying a toboggan instead of a snow shovel.

Panel 3: For some reason, Mike tells her to take a break from shoveling.

Panel 4: This is so he can ask her to go sledding with him.

Panel 5: He makes a determined-looking face as he prepares to leave.

Panel 6: As they zoom down the hill, I wonder why his eyes aren't bulging out because a frightened out of her tiny mind Elly has got a death-grip on his mid-section.

Panel 7: As they catch some air, he yells with delight while she screams in blind terror.

Panel 8: They continue to zoom down the hill.

Panel 9: As he comes to a stop, she lets go and falls flat on her back.

Panel 10: We next see him telling John that she does not trust his driving as a means of explaining why she's frozen in freaked-out rage.

Summary: As I've said before, Lynn and Elly appear to share the same terror of falling down on slippery surfaces and being left to die. This strip itself eventually reappears as her freaking out because Mike takes her on a snowmobile ride which leads to her screaming about how he's trying to kill her or something.
