Snowstorm at Night

(Toledo, OH) An early spring snowstorm dumped about eight inches of snow in Northwest Ohio overnight, and areas of Southeast Michigan received over one foot of snow. I started shoveling last night, but the one-inch-per-hour rate made my efforts something of a waste of time.

I instead chose to spend a few minutes standing in the storm, listening to the deafening silence of a city at rest under the blanket of frozen precipitation.

I think these storms serve a useful purpose in bringing people closer together. After my minutes of chilly reverie, I went inside and played backgammon with my wife, an activity we might not have shared had the weather not caneceled other plans.
