The Day the World Took Off

Regardless of outcome from the “storm of the century” it was a day when all non-essential personnel were told to just stay home. No planes carved white paths through the sky, no vehicles lumbered by on the road below. There is a silence to a snowstorm unlike any other. Birds flitted down to the feeders for sustenance but wasted no breath on song.DSC_8822 DSC_8824 It was a day for making snow angels,

and playing like no one was watching.

It was a day of changing light and shapes.

  1. Our weather warnings brought about an inch of snow on a hill about fifteen miles from here. The buses all cut their routes short and panic ensued. All we had was slush! I like the silence of snow and the fresh crispness beofre anyone walks on it. It isn’t something I’ve seen often though.
