The snow muffles sounds and if you're also wearing a warm winter hat , it's very quiet outside.
When we were kids, tired from playing , we would sometimes plop down, flat on our backs, in the snow . You would sink down in the snow so that you had snow walls about a foot high around you that blocked your vision of everything except the sky above. It was so soothing, it was hard not to stay there and fall asleep.
