The wind outside was coming out of the west at a sustained rate of 30mph, with gusts around 45mph. With the air filled with powdery snow it was difficult to look into the wind even with something covering the eyes. I’ve felt this before!
It is snowing today. To walk around in the silence after it snows in a large city is one of the few things I look forward to each year. The snow seems to act like a large muffler that deafens the already quiet evening air. With the snow deadening the noise of all of the road vehicles tires it is much more peaceful.
