Eerily silent, like the end of the world.

Just back from my daily walk down by the lake. The air temp is pretty warm for March--9C--but the ice still hasn't broken up. Without ice, the lake is all motion all the time as waves lap (or crash) onto the shore, and there's the constant noise of the water in motion. Today, with the water held in check under the ice, there was no noise at all other than some occasional creaking and cracking from the movement of the melting ice. No wind, no movement, no people. Lots of fog because of the difference in temps between the air and the frozen expanse of lake.
