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.
