But it was so very quiet. Had I been a few years older (or now, basically), I might have thought it was the zombie apocalypse. Not this time though. I looked out the window. The world had gone white. Everything was completely blanketed. There was no room for noise or movement or shape in that white world. Only a few shadows remained. It was as if the world had ear muffs on – very big ear muffs made of snow.
To my eight year old self, this was incredible. Never had I known a world like this before. A world of lush green, and a world of dry brown, but never a world of quiet white.
