An island silenced by snow

Snow falls on a pair of Buffleheads paddling the frigid waters of Read’s Bay.

THE QUICKEST WAY to make a quiet, beautiful little island quieter and more beautiful? Dump six inches of snow on it. Everything changes.

Every sound is muffled. Every footstep is cushioned. Every tree limb boldly silhouetted. Every hard edge softened.

A lone set of tire tracks edges Center Island’s snow-blanketed airfield Saturday morning.
