Friday I thought you’d never come! I’ve had a cough all week and I desperately need some downtime this weekend. Unfortunately, I have to go in to work tomorrow for an open house event, but at least I can sleep in a bit.
Last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Silence” and I decided to go with this photo I took during (well technically after) a snowstorm back in 2016.
I love the end of a snowstorm when everything is silent, still, and peaceful outside. Do you know what I’m talking about? You open your door and everything is completely still outside. The snow plows haven’t started yet. No one’s on the roads because you’re snowed in. Everything looks beautiful outside covered in a blanket of untouched snow. The shoveling, plowing, and cleanup hasn’t started yet. The snow hasn’t mixed with dirt and become slushy. You’re snowed in so you don’t have to worry about the drive in to work. You can just enjoy the beauty and silence.
In this photo the snow had just stopped and it was getting to be evening so the sky was grey. It’s definitely a magical time before the clean up and cabin fever sets in!
