The cold is much too severe to travel. The man starts a fire under a tree with snow on the branches. The snow melts and extinguishes the fire. The man's fingers are too frozen to manipulate the matches. The dog doesn't trust the man (he's a jerk) so the dog won't go near him. Please enter your other questions separately.
