    Just a Thought
    Was the sound of snow falling the first occurence of "white noise"?

      Hmm...I'd never pondered this before. I love the oddly muffled sounds when it is snowing or has just snowed.

      On the subject of snow: I hope for your sake that the storm that came through here last night doesn't dump as much snow on you in New York as it did here. I needed a personal trainer outside encouraging me to shovel all that snow.

      I realize the inherent rhetoric nature of the question, but I'll be damned if I could resist finding an answer.

      Sorry for the dorkitude.

      I too love that muffled sound. I also like the way it smells outside right before it snows. My nose is a little weather predictor.

      Too bad we're not in school - we would have had a snow day.

      CK: We got pretty well pounded, but the worst was the weird slushing stage it went through. I don't envy your shoveling. The beauty of living in the city :)

      Maine: Wiseass, I was trying to be clever :-P

      Esther: I wanted a snow day soooo bad.

      I have a snow day! Ah the wonders of the internet age. 'Work from home' is a lovely phrase.

      Also...

      you said you got pounded

      heeheehee

      *sigh* I want snow. I'll trade your slush for the cold rain we received.

      No snow day here - but we did leave early.

      I wish I could work at home - though I think I'd get too distracted.

      I hate winter. How many days until I can wear my flip flops again?

      Hmm, good question.

      You know what sound I like? The sound of beer going down my throat.

      Only a few short hours Meegan and we'll be in the beer guzzling heaven that is the After-L*&^%%$#-Holiday-Party-Drinkfest

      assuming that snow fell sometime before humans appeared on the planet... if snow falls and there's nobody there to hear it, does it really make a sound?
