Usage examples for obliteration
The snow fell all that night; with fierce gusts of wind that moaned in the chimneys of North Liberty and sorely troubled the Sabbath sleep of its decorous citizens; with deep, passionless silences, none the less fateful, that softly precipitated a spotless mantle of merciful obliteration equally over their precise or their straying footprints, that would have done them good to heed and to remember; and when morning broke upon a world of week- day labor, it was covered as far as their eyes could reach as with a clear and unwritten tablet, on which they might record their lives anew. – The Argonauts of North Liberty by Bret Harte
