This morning I was torn…  I woke up and a quick check out the window showed dry pavement and 30 degrees on the thermometer.  With a forecast of snow on the horizon I couldn’t decide if I should run before I started seeing clients or after.  Since my next opportunity to run wouldn’t be until 2 PM, I decided to run before work and before the temperatures started to plummet.

I took off for six miles and welcomed a few stray snowflakes here and there.  Just as I exited the trail and headed back to our house, the snow started to come down pretty hard.  My first client arrived soon after I got in from my run and we watched the snow start to accumulate surprisingly quickly on the deck during her workout.  Since my last appointment left, the snow has continued to pile up and the temps have dropped ten degrees.

Before heading out for my first round of shoveling, I thought I’d leave you with this…
