A Moment of Silence

Winter is not my favorite season.

There are, however, a few moments when I am grateful for snow. 

The best, most peaceful and serene moments happen just after a big snow. School has been cancelled for the day, people haven't yet left for work and everything outside is silent. Completely silent. But if you stand outside for a minute you can hear bits of snow dropping from roof tops or tree branches creaking under the weight of the new fallen snow. 

To me, that is beauty.
