We were warned a few days in advance, but even so, at 5:00 am, I tried to pretend it was just raining, that sleet wasn’t actually hitting the window. By the time Hannah and I finished our walk, we were both covered with snowflakes. Before long, I learned that the Governor had declared a state of emergency and my office had officially closed for the day. Fortunately (I think), I have the advantage of being able to work remotely from home so I was still able to care for all the stuff that needed to be done today and my team did a great job of making sure our Customer’s needs were met.
Even though I’ve had enough snow to last me a lifetime having spent much of my life in Michigan, it still brought a smile to my face when I saw the neighbor kids outside building a snowman. I don’t think they have much opportunity to do that here in Nashville as a rule. After work, I tried to convince my house mate to head outside with Hannah and me to tromp around in the snow, but she declined. Something about having moved from Michigan to Tenneessee to escape the snow . . .
Hannah had a great time running around in the snow – and I confess, I enjoyed it myself! I’m sure I’ll be over it tomorrow when I am wanting to run errands and the snow is still crippling the entire city, but for now, it’s pretty beautiful outside. And I get to say I lived in Nashville back in January of 2016 when they had that record snowfall!

The trees are so pretty!

C’mon, let’s run around in the white stuff!
