Somebody is climbing up the post. He must be pretty good, or he'd get down quickly. Morris was looking for the barn door. The animals needed to be fed. That's snow down below. The others around him felt cold and wet. Sometimes animals will chase them through that door, but other ones will chase them up the pole. Some of the animals said "moo", other ones stomp around without making a sound at all. The solid humidity made it especially stinky. The animals got away and all the people starved.
