I was awoken this morning by two things.
The first was the sound of my iPhone ding-a-ling-ing, letting me know I had a text message. At 4:12 am. A whole 8 minutes before my alarm was to go off. I hate that.
The second was my sweet husband hopping out of bed and drawing back the curtains in our bedroom, and proceeded to shake me and say, "You better come see this!"
Snow, snow and more snow!
In case you were wondering, the 4:12 text message was an automated message from our command saying that due to the weather, there would be a two-hour delay.
Ryan and his crew are considered "essential" at work, so he had to go in regardless of the status of his command. He says that he's essential, but I think they all just say that to boost their egos.
After I drove him in and made it safely back home (I love our Subaru Forester!), I plopped down on the couch with my sweet (Sonny) and gassy (Brock) pups and waited.
I was waiting for another update from our command station that the base would be closed due to the weather. My wait was over at 7:30.
Once it got light enough, I grabbed my camera and stepped outside to capture the snow. There's something about the snow falling that is magical. It seems like the world sort of stops and it gets very quiet, and peaceful.

So far, its been a glorious morning. My heart is happy, and I love sitting here just watching the snow fall peacefully outside... While Brock lays next to me snoring.
