The sound of snow

When you wake up in the morning with what sounds like a strange creature scratching at the walls, you know it has been snowing. Yes, apart from the strange silence snow brings, it also brings the sound of snow being scraped off cars.

It started snowing this morning. Only the second time since I have been here. It is magical! I know many other people will dispute this, but to me it is still fascinating. Fluffy white flakes covering everything, making it look so soft and clean (unlike dandruff, which is fluffy and white but not clean).

The other thing with this snow business is that it feels a good deal less cold at -2 ºC and snowing than when it is raining and 2 ºC. Yes, raining in the winter sucks.

So here are some fresh pics of this morning's fresh snow, taken from our balcony. I'll go out later and take some more:

  1. Why do we only have snow on the car, but none on the ground?

  3. The sound of scraping windshields feels like a distant memory to me now. The snow is beautiful when it's fresh and clean, but not so much a day or two later when it becomes slushy gray mush.
