Serenity Sunday: Super snowfalls

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned my intention to publish a sequel.  I’m ready to do that, but I’d like to postpone it for a day or so in view of the massive snowfall that has paralyzed much of the eastern seaboard of the USA.   As I see photos that are being shown of folks digging out, I am reflecting on one that I experienced in February 2010, while I was living Virginia snowfall 151in northern Virginia and working in Washington DC.  Heavy snowfall is a real rarity in that area, and this one was truly memorable for me.  It took five days for the streets to be cleared enough for anyone to be able to get out of the neighborhood to resume a normal life.  The serene silence matched the nearly-monochrome natural beauty all around me.

    It sure looks like a winter wonderland to me.
    (I find it strange that I have a love and longing for snow-drenched landscapes. Wouldn’t you think I’d love the Australian Outback living in this country).

      You have access to snowscapes too–I’ve seen The Man From Snowy River several times, and the Snowy Mountains are not all that far (globally speaking) from where you are. Still, I fully understand. On the other hand, I’ve been to Oz something like 20 times, and have never been able to venture farther inland from the coast than 600 km (Roma, QLD), and one of my bucket list goals is to take the train through the Nullarbor Plain. Have you ever done that?

  3. That’s a great picture. I like the way the horizontal shadows cross the shallowly undulating mounds of snow in the road.

    I remember from when I was growing up on Long Island that I didn’t like it when something finally marred the surface of the latest fallen snow. Ah, those were the days….

    I am in full agreement. There was an indescribable magic that arrived hand-in-hand with the snowy event, and a large part of me was very sorry to see it pass.

    Beautiful, my friend – and as long as snow like that doesn’t hit us over here I’ll be happy! A :)
