The summer chair rocking by itself In the blizzard... Jack Kerouac

"All day a driving snow storm, imprisoning most, stopping the cars, blocking up the roads. No school to-day. I cannot see a house fifty rods off from my window through [it]; yet in midst of all I see a bird, probably a tree sparrow, partly blown, partly flying over the house to alight in a field. The snow penetrates through the smallest crevices under doors and side of windows." Henry David Thoreau
Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow; and driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to slight; the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden's end."
Ralph Waldo Emerson,"The Snowstorm"
The snow fell with unabated lavishness until an hour or two after the coming on of what appeared to be the natural darkness of night. John Muir, "Snow-Storm on Mount Shasta."
