So Quiet…

I've never heard it so quiet here. We live about 0.5 miles from the 405, and you don't realize how much background noise the freeway makes, constantly, 24 hours a day, until it's suddenly gone, and all there is in its place is silence. Complete and utter silence. Extraordinary.

    I thought for sure you’d be experiencing that utter silence on Shasta this weekend!

    I also live near the 405 off Sunset. What a great weekend. No freeway noise, no traffic, clear air. They should do this all the time.
