The weather outside is frightful

And yet it's beautiful. 

I've long believed that if it's gonna be cold, it oughta be snowing, and today I got my wish. We are in the midst of a winter storm the likes of which I haven't seen in quite awhile, and there's no end in sight. I'm safe at home (after my hour and a half drive home, a whopping nine miles!) and just completely enjoying the view from my window three floors above Downtown Arlington Heights.

It may mess up my weekend plans. It may snarl traffic for 24 hours. It may make for treacherous driving, but I don't care. I made an angel, caught snowflakes on my tongue, and wrote a note to my neighbor in the snow on his car. 

So basically, I played in the snow. Life is good.
