Valentine's Snow Day

Valentine's Day Snow

Snowed (or sleeted, rather) all night and all day. Snow plows couldn't keep up so the roads were all covered in a layer of snow, making travel rather slow. On the plus side, work let off early. I didn't go anywhere else, other than to the gas station to get a gallon of milk.
