The incredible blanket of snow
It has snowed!!!! The entire world is so softly and warmly blanketed, I cannot hear one little sound. It is still dark yet somehow glowing. I search fruitlessly for a moon or star, and pivot around to determine if the eerie glow emanates from the hated black snake's klieg lights but they too have been squelched.
The snow is so soft, only about 2 inches, but so thoroughly embracing everything I don't even hear my footsteps as I should.
I rejoice in the beautiful silence.
