661. What does the sound of a massive, diesel-powered snow plow going by your house make you think of and why? Would it make your parents think of something different than you? Why or why not?

662. How might you feel about the sound if you were the one driving the plow? Would you take pride in your job? What would you enjoy the most about your job plowing the streets and why?

663. As you look out into the vast snowy landscape, you hear a gust of wind blowing the snow from one hill to another. If the winter wind could talk, what would it say and why? How would you respond to the howls of wind and why?

664. Create a poem or a song that describes how the winter wind sounds differently than the wind of other seasons. Include how the different seasonal winds make you feel and why for a personal touch.

665. When the roads are covered in snow, the sound that can stand out the most is the sound of silence. How does the quiet and white road make you feel in comparison to its usual noise level and why? Is there anything you are more or less likely to do because of the quiet and why?

666. If you lived in a frequently snow-covered area, would you get sick of the quiet? Why or why not? What sounds would you most want to hear if you hadn't heard any in a while and why?

667. It seems like the entire neighborhood is gathered at the top of the steepest hill in town. Describe the sounds of all the kids as they sled, tube, and dive down the snow-packed hill. Which of the sounds do you like, which do you dislike, and why?

668. How do you think the way sounds of kids sledding and enjoying themselves make you feel will change as you get older? Will you be jealous, annoyed or something completely different and why? Would this feeling change if it was your own kids playing? Why or why not?

669. What are some of the sounds you hear around your home in the winter that you wouldn't normally hear in other seasons? How do those sounds make you feel and what sounds might you use to respond to them?

670. You hear a large group of Christmas carolers down the street heading toward your house. How will you and your family react and why? Would you react differently if you were a different religion or lived in a different neighborhood?
