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 😛

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?
