Oh, what a wonderland
Colorado weather amazes me. Yesterday, landon brought me lunch at work and we sat outside in the 65-degree sun as we enjoyed our meal, and today we awoke to a blizzard! Blizzards only come a few times a year, and this year it came in October!! Pretty early for a blizzard, but most welcome. Strong gusts of wind and falling snow has pretty-much shut down our city. No work for me - or anyone else in our apartment complex. Our cars are buried in snow. The only vehicle that has managed to get out today is Landon's.
Landon is quite a rare breed. When my boss called to tell me stay home from the day, Landon sprang out of bed and put on his snow-shoes, managing to take a few pictures. Then when he got home he wanted to take his blazer on the roads. We were pretty much the only ones on the roads besides the street-plows and abandoned vehicles. Still, the roads weren't too bad, actually and it was a lot of fun to brave the storm. He just got back from a walk out west at the "Garden of the Gods". I'm sure we'll go for a walk tonight with a backwoods and snowshoes. I can't see outside as my glasses fog up and get wet and i'm left blinded and cold...Contact lenses are off-limits right now as my eyes torture me for them.
Well, this weather is perfect and definitely brightened my mood as work has been stressful as i have been working over-time to get things done and things still aren't getting done. I'm learning fast and value my job (and am so grateful for it), yet I arrive home exhausted and a pitiful wife. This day has been great. I made hot chocolate, go to play my piano for awhile, made pumpkin bread, watched a movie, cleaned up a bit, and now, finally get to update our blog.
Last tuesday was our 2 year anniversary. It was fun to celebrate our love and our marriage, and we had many friends and family who took part as well. It actually snowed tons that night, and everything froze over during the night. Still had work the next day, though i slid around all over the streets, blocking 2 lanes of traffic, slid through a stop-light, and finally made it to work after 2 u-turns on hills and 35 minutes of persevering the ice through town. Snow is much better than ice. Hope tomorrow morning will be better.
