Snowfall

Time: 1607

12 January 2012

How does one describe the sound of the snow? How does one describe the eerie silence accompanied by inches of snow resting? How does one describe the whistle or music that falling snow creates in collision with the wind? How does one describe winter without using words related to winter?

The hallowing collision between the dropping of snow flakes combined with the brisk wind, what type of sound is that? How does one describe the sound of passing sirens combined with that of the whistle of a freight train? How does one describe the sound of Philip Glass’ Knee Play 5?

How does one describe the happiness of driving on pure ice or the car’s anti-lock breaks? How does one describe the happiness of shoveling and hot chocolate? How does one describe freezing hands caused by the action of molding and throwing snowballs at an unexpected patron?

How does one describe the swishing of snow? How does one describe watching small children scamper through the snow banks? How does one describe the happiness of unexpected patrons slipping?
