Let it Snow Baby!

Posted on: December 12, 2008

As you saw in the post from a couple days ago, we had snow in Houston. I went out and took pictures at about 10:30 pm. It was beautiful. The snow made me miss the wintery nights of Iowa when I used to walk across campus in about 3 inches of snow with even more snow coming down. Everything would be quiet and the only sound you would hear is the squish of snow under your shoes.

There’s a quality about falling snow that muffles the world. There’s a peace that comes with gently falling flakes. The only thing I generally have in Houston that is close to it is fog. Fog dampens the sounds and makes things mysterious, but not in the way that snow does.

Here’s some of the pictures.
