Our first snowstorm of 2014. Went back to work yesterday after a wonderful twelve-day holiday, only to have a snow holiday today. Everything seems almost eerily quiet and still. The branches are lined with snow, and only the wind shakes off a few stitches now and then. At 17° it's way too cold for any melting.
I've been doing some work at my desk by the back window. The sun is shining and shadows slowly cruise from one side of the ocean of white to the other. Listening to classical music on Radio Swiss Classic (French announcement version).
Reigning over all is the calm that only a snowfall can bring.
