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.
Pretty much everyone out at this time of the evening and during this weather is working or on their way to work. Both of these things are less likely due to it being January 1st. The calm that surrounded me this morning was welcomed. One of the workers out was delivering newspapers. I always am interested in the fact that snow shows the trace of anything that touches it. This proved to be true in the first image, great trail caused by the paper as it slid on the fresh powder.
