Snowy Silence

listen-snowEphropology,” the illustrated bucket list that appeared in the spring 2013 issue, suggests that students “stand outside late at night and listen to the silence as it snows.” I was a junior advisor at Lehman Hall and remember standing in front of the entry late at night when it was snowing. The light was on in front of the door, and as I stood there looking up into the snow, with no other point of reference, I had the strong sensation of floating up through the flakes. Try it sometime—it’s an experience that I’ve repeated many times, but the night at Lehman was the first.
