Listening to Nothing

It's snowing. And it's cold. 

But as much as I complain--I do love being out in the snow, especially during a snow storm. It's the month old grayish brown snow that makes me want to pull my hair out. But a snowfall--that's something to winess. It's not the same looking out from a window. No, you gotta be in it to get it.  So much going on around you, it's like falling chaos. Yet, the silence is deafening. I'm telling ya, there's nothing like the silence of a snowfall.

I pointed this out to Bella as we stood by the side of the road when her bus pulled away. And of course, she requested the definition of chaos. And she understood.

And we stopped to listen to nothing.

And we ate some falling snow.

And made our way back into the warmth of our home.


Thank God It's Friday Family Movie Night!

  1. You are a braver woman than I, Gina. That is primarily why I moved to California. If I lived in snow, poor Ella would come home to a snowy sidewalk, with Mama hidden in the house under layers of blankets and snack food.
    My favorite is how at night, newly fallen snow makes it look like it is day time outside, with the moon reflecting off of the snow.
