Letters: Snow makes for special scenes

Snow makes for special scenes

To the editor:

There is something very special about how even the most modest residential city street is almost transformed by a heavy snow fall into an old-fashioned postcard winter scene. The snow covers majestic area trees as well as little neighborhood imperfections into a blanket of beautiful crystal white and the sounds of human activity are centered indoors. As the cold settles in there is a winter silence that fills the air only broken by the muffled sound of passing car or the crunchy sound of people walking by in the snow. You can almost imagine a horse-drawn sleigh go by on a dark snowy night. Yards are separated by growing piles of white. Even as neighbors get reacquainted when they shovel side-by-side or shovel a neighbor's sidewalk. The pace of life slows down a bit as people spend more time closer to home with their families. Ii is so important to appreciate the many God-given blessings around us even at the start of an extra snowy winter season.
