There’s a Groke looking in our window.

The Groke from Tove Jansson’s Moominland Midwinter

“She appears as a ghost-like, hill-shaped body with two cold staring eyes and a wide row of white shiny teeth…Wherever she stands, the ground below her freezes and plants and grass die. She leaves a trace of ice and snow when she walks the ground. Anything she touches will freeze and on one instance she froze a campfire by sitting down on it. She seeks friendship and warmth, but she is declined by everyone and everything, leaving her in her cold cavern on top of the Lonely Mountains. On one occasion in a comic, however, she was hailed as a heroine when she, in her constant search for warmth, extinguished a forest wildfire by sitting on it.” – Wikipedia

And the snow keeps on falling…
