Dad, Molly, Miss Darcy, Robert and Milly are on their way back from the museum. It's snowing again and Molly hopes the old van makes it home. Miss Darcy found an arrowhead in a corner of the burned out museum. Dad has it wrapped in tissue in his pocket. The mystery continues to unfold as the team investigates the fire.

Icy roads along the way

Molly is listening to the strange sounds the van is making as they travel down the road. It's cold and the snow keeps coming down. The old van slid sideways a few times and that told Molly that there was ice under the snow. The roads are treacherous and she is hoping that they make it home safe. Robert saw a snow plow but it was behind them on the freeway. It would be better if the big truck was in front of them. If they ended up in a ditch it would take forever to get home.

Miss Darcy's thoughts

Miss Darcy was sitting on the back ledge watching the snow come down. She was very thankful that she was in the van where it was warm. This weather was starting to get out of hand fast. It snowed every single day. There was times when she wished that she'd gone south with her family. She looked around the van and knew she couldn't leave Dad or the team. Dad had mentioned wanting Miss Darcy to stay at the house until this cold spell ended. She had thought about it and decided she'd take Dad up on the offer. It would be warm and besides that she'd be there for all the action. Now that she'd found another clue things were beginning to heat up and it definitely seemed like the curator was up to no good. She had a funny feeling about that man since the first time she met him. He didn't like Clarissa or Katie and that alone aggravated her. They were the sweetest spiders on the planet.

Arriving home safe and sound

The old van made it home and everyone gave a sigh of relief when they pulled in the driveway. Mom's car was covered in snow and the driveway needed shoveled but at least they were home. Mom was standing in the door waiting for everyone. As they walked in the door Mom held out a plate of cookies for everyone to share. Miss Darcy flew in and sat on the ledge near Freddy's fish bowl. She couldn't wait to tell him she'd be a visitor for a few weeks.

Dad's planning a meeting

Dad took a couple of cookies and went into his office. He placed the arrowhead on his desk and turned on his computer. He was going to search for the history of this particular arrowhead. When he went through the list of items that had been originally stolen from the museum, this piece was not on the list. Dad didn't find much information other than it was very old. He decided to call the curator and arrange a meeting with him for this afternoon. He really didn't want to go back out in the snow but this case was important and he wanted to get to the bottom of the arrowheads before he searched for more clues. This time he would leave the team at home. They seemed to bring out the worst in the gentleman.

Dad leaves the team behind

Dad decided that the best way to get out of the house without drawing any suspicion to himself was to say he was going to the store to pick up a few items. Molly wouldn't suspect anything and Milly would be happy to stay home with Mom. Freddy wouldn't give Dad any trouble and Miss Darcy was watching television in the family room. Rusty usually stayed upstairs in the attic unless it was dinnertime or they requested his presence for a meeting. Dad bundled up to go out in the snow. Robert would probably be watching from his living room window so Dad had to turn right when he left his driveway. It would look like he was going to the store. Robert was Mr. eagle eye when it came to anyone coming or going out of their driveway. The meeting was scheduled for late afternoon and Dad had plenty of time to get there. He had some questions for the curator that he wanted answered. Dad's not aware of the fact that the curator has a surprise for him.
