Snow Sounds

Another fond memory of Maine, this time from Sarah Ruddy of Detroit (Michigan) and Rockport (Maine). She reflects on "the thick sound of cold, dry wind blowing snow against my windows," and "the 'beep beep beep' of a plow backing up."
i find these sounds remarkably comforting, i think because when i was growing up in maine these were the sounds of "no school." if i heard snow blowing against my windows during the night, there was at least a 50% chance of getting, at rock bottom, a 90 minute delay. if i heard the plow backing up outside in the middle of the night, i was most certainly sleeping in.
