The Little Match Girl - Hans Christian Anderson

This quote was added by winxos
Once upon a time, a little girl tried to make a living by selling matches in the street. It was New Year's Eve and the snowed streets were deserted. From brightly lit windows came the tinkle of laughter and the sound of singing. People were getting ready to bring in the New Year. But the poor little match seller sat sadly beside the fountain. Her ragged dress and worn shawl did not keep out the cold and she tried to keep her bare feet from touching the frozen ground.

Google comes up with snowed, snow-clad, and snowy for the deserted streets. You would think snowy and that maybe snowed is some centuries old usage.
