Leise, rieselt der Schnee...


Winter's Repose : Ferney-Voltaire, FR

It's done a lot of snowing in these parts since about Christmas. The other night, we went out walking. There's a bench on our street corner, which is kind of odd, because there isn't a bus stop. Still, it made for a cold, wintry photo.

The title to today's post comes from a German Christmas song by the same title. Translated, it says "Quiet rustles the snow..." It's one of my favorites and the coldness captured in this photo is softened by the loop this tune plays in my head.

I hate most things about snow, but the "quiet" that comes with it is superb.

Gerald: I've heard they're a hot commodity in the UK!

Maya: Thank you!

Larry: I'm with you on that one! It's been pretty cold in Alabama, too. Has it snowed there a lot this year?

I knew a guy in college whose last name was Schnee. I had no idea it meant snow!

Kenju: I'll bet your friend hated to tell people what his last name translated to!

L.A.: Thanks for the heads up! I totally missed that.
