Winter has Finally Arrived

Well, it’s finally happened. The big snow dump I’ve been waiting for here in SE Pennsylvania and boy did Mother Nature ever take a dump on us. I don’t know the final tally, but we took enough inches to keep us satisfied until Summer.

I like snow. As long as I don’t have to do the following:

– Shoveling it
– Driving in it
– Walking in it
– Working in it
– Staying too long in it

Yep, I’m not a fan of anything snow-related outside of watching it fall and leave. Let’s face it, I’m not exactly a kid anymore and my days of sledding and tobogganing are way behind me.

I did notice something interesting when I was out in it a little bit ago. It was quiet. I’m not sure if the snow deadened the acoustics outside or merely kept the usual suspects indoors, but the silence had an unearthly quality about it. No echoes, no sounds reverberating off nearby structures. Nada.

I have no regrets about seeing such a snowfall. We’ve been lucky to have mild winters the past few years so we were due. Life goes on.

Thanks for your time. 🙂
