I realise I am being selfish but the snow made everything quieter and my well-being improved as a result.
Yes, I missed hearing the birds singing but I did not miss the assault of man-made noise. At least the rain kept the latter at bay for today.
Here's one of my favourite poems about snow. It says so much in so few words, and encapsulates the experience...
Yeah, I like that.
"...When I was younger, this was all fields..." ;-)
