I was definately up at 5am this morning so I could watch the weather. I felt like I was in elementary school again. We had a heck of a winter storm last night and I secretly wished that I could stay home today. I commute an hour to and from work everyday and I was not looking forward to doing it on icy roads.
Unfotunately we weren't closed, so I got up and headed out. It wasn't bad yet on the way there, so I drove slowly and avoided big highway bridges. At noon it really started to look bad so I left work and started the trek home.
It was intense and nerve racking. It took an hour and a half to get home, but boy was I glad to make it. The most surprising part of the drive was how beautiful everything can be with a layer of snow on it.
Also, for the first time Steven and I were able to start decorating. Here is a pic of the house with our tree, lights and our first snow.
