Snow Storm Pictures From the Park

by Mark Schrull

2/4/2013 10:22 AM Lorain, Ohio – Today is the 4th of February two days after Lorain County took on 6 inches of snow.  Currently it is snowing light but steady.  Winds are calm to 7 MPH out of the South East.  Barometer is 30 and increasing.  Temp is 18 F.

During the heavy snow fall 2 days ago, (2/2/2013) Brutis and I decided to walk into the park and take some shots.  Day’s Dam is such a beautiful metro park. I love being outside in a snow storm.  There is a phenomenon which takes place during heavy snow fall that I have come to appreciate over the years.  The world gets quieter.  I am not a scientist, but I believe this happens because  the large snow flakes absorb and muffle the sounds.  Sounds like traffic from a near by street, or an airplane flying in the distant sky are quieter, and sometimes silenced.  The air seems so much fresher and cleaner too.  The whole experience has a calming effect on me.  It makes me feel closer to nature and God’s world.

What follows are some pictures from our walk in the park during the snow storm.
