Hush

As often happens in these parts, we had snow on Sunday -- about 3-5 inches of fairly wet, fluffy stuff which quickly got grainy and hard in the 20F weather. Oddly enough, there wasn't much wind, so the snow is still sitting in thick, white, gravity-defying layers on sidewalks and tree branches and fenceposts.

I woke up at 3 AM on Sunday morning furious at my upstairs neighbor for running his vacuum really loudly at, well, 3 AM. Then I *really* woke up and realized the noise was actually snowblowers on the sidewalks. Oops. So much for my generosity and forgiveness.

In the evening after work, I walked to the bank (thank goodness for 24 hour ATMs, without which I would surely starve though probably have actual money in my account) enjoying the hush that fell upon the city with the snow. Enough salt trucks have been out to turn the gutters into pools of freezing gray slush, but if you look up far enough, you can see the warm glow of people's holiday lights, reflected into the sky by the snow.

I am sorry I haven't been able to keep up with other people's posts. But I'm glad I had a few minutes to enjoy the snow.
