A Quiet Time in the Snow

One of the most enjoyable times is walking while it is snowing.

I love taking walks in the snow, but you must be dressed for it. If it is snowing and it is a dry snow, less water content, the snow will bounce right off of your clothes. 

Once we traveled to Sonora, California, on a Saturday night, during a snow storm. When we arrived in downtown Sonora at three in the morning, no one was walking on the sidewalks, and there was no traffic on the main street, Washington Street. In fact, there were no cars on the street at all, so we decided to take a walk. 

We went walking right down the middle of the street, and watching us were two Sonora Policemen who thought it was funny to see us walking, and leaving our boot marks behind in the street. 

Talking to the officers, we were told, on a Saturday night, like that night, the street was usually crowded with people going home from the bars or a party, but on that snowy night it was really quiet and empty. 

After talking to the officers, we continued walking in the middle of the street, up to a church, Sonora Red Church, where we had to get back onto the sidewalk, for finally a car was coming up the left side of the street.  

By the time we got to where we were staying, a foot of snow fell like a white blanket and turned everything a pure white. 

The walk down Sonora’s main street was very quiet.  The only thing we heard was a slight crunching noise from our boots, as we took steps, and our breathing.

It was very peaceful as the leaves slightly moved from a small wind.

We always loved to take a walk when we stayed in snow country, to feel and see the area, when everything was a beautiful white blanket of snow.
