#623 The sound of snow crunching under your boots

Dim streetlights cast blurry shadows for your cold walk home.

Snow-packed mitts, floppy wool hat, and a drippy, sniffly nose cover your shuddery frame as you shuffle down empty side streets on your way to the cozy warmth of your waiting bed. Everything is an eerily pitch-perfect silence buried under a shadowy sheet of bright white. Pine trees sway softly, Christmas lights flicker, and the biting air ice-scrapes your frost-nipped nose.

Somehow the solid crunch of your winter boots against the packed road snow fills the night with a relaxing and familiar sound that marks tiny little progress towards cuddling up under warm blankets and falling deep asleep.

Like cracking frozen puddles, pushing soft drink lid buttons, or popping a spoon in a jar of peanut butter, the sound of snow crunching under your salty winter boots scratches a primal itch that just feels so satisfying.

So stuff your hands in your pockets, curl your head to your chest, and crunch loud and crunch proud deep into the dark, winter night.

  1. I really connected with the line that describes the sound of crunching snow as the”relaxing and familiar sound that marks tiny little progress towards cuddling up under warm blankets…” It’s amusing to hear how the pace of this sound steadily increases as one’s bones chill.

  2. The sound of crunchy snow is a good sign. You are less likely to slip. I have plenty of experience. I live in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where the average snowfall is 240 inches.

  3. I’ve lived abroad in tropical countries for the past three years. This reminds me of the good part of the Wisconsin winter. It is truly a beautiful time of the year, and being away from it for so long makes me miss it.

  4. I apologize if this has already been posted. But I remembered this website and one of the things I missed about winter. The sound of ICE crunching under your shoes. Not when your out on the middle of a lake, but that thin layer of ice that forms overnight – usually on a puddle. I was working and got to enjoy this sound/feeling

  5. Also, mountain biking in an inch or two of the white stuff is serene – a constant hum and slight squeak come off the tires. It’s a cool sensation. (Pun intended.)

  6. Beautifully written wok of art.

  7. It’s nice right after it snows, it’s just dealing with it after the first layer turns to I’ve then it’s not so nice:)
