That was Unexpected

We had our first good snow storm of the season over the last weekend.  Last night I experienced something I never expected because of it.  I let the dog out for the last time for the evening, and it was dead quiet. There were no cars to be heard, no teenagers wandering about, nothing.  In the middle of suburbia.  Clouds were just hazy enough to give a nice glow to the waxing gibbous moon, but obscured the stars. In short, it was a moment of absolute peace. The only sound was the ringing of my tinnitus, and the snow seemed even to muffle that.  

Find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
