Great things about being blind. The sounds of freezing rain.
It was freezing rain yesterday afternoon and last night too. When it does this, I am glad I am blind and cannot drive. It must be frightening and nerve wracking doing that. I'm not quite sure what freezing rain looks like but it has certain sounds. when it taps against the window, it really taps hard on the panes of glass. When you hear it hit the railing or the car or any hard surface it also taps and clatters and bangs. When it hits your skin it stings and it makes a tick tick sound against your hood. You also can hear people walking cautiously moving with cautious steps and sometimes sliding. So, when I hear all of these things, I try to be as careful as possible. Stay safe out there everyone.
