Weather we like it or not...

Upon waking this morning, it seemed like it was going to be a beautiful day. We walked out to the car and the sun was peaking over the mountains, the birds were singing, and while it was still chilly, it wasn't so cold that I had to wear a coat. Dustan drove to work, and we listened to Cake (a band) the whole way. I love driving to work with Dustan in the morning. I get to spend 20 minutes with him - just him and me. We sing along to the music (usually something he has introduced me to) and sometimes we even get crazy and start dancing. Morning has always been my favorite part of the day, but it's even better now that I have Dustan to spend it with!
By the time Dustan came to pick me up from work, the sky was looking ominous. Dustan commented on how this morning he had thought that today was going to be the nicest day of the year, and now it was getting windy and rainy. A little disappointed, we shrugged it off and continued on with our day. In our converstion, we determined that today was a good day. Dustan scored well on his Physiology test - 92% - Way to go! And work for me hadn't been stressful in the least. We grabbed a quick bite to eat at J-Dawgs and stopped by the international market just down the street. Then we headed home for an hour or so before Dustan had to go to class and I had to head back to work for Parent/Teacher Conferences.
When it was time to go, we looked out the window, and it had started snowing, and not just the kind of snow that gently floats to the ground and melts away as it touches down. The flakes were huge and wet, coming down in a blizzard-like manner. They stuck to the grass and we couldn't even see any green peeking out above the white. I froze. I do not like to drive in the snow. We got in the car and as we started driving it just got worse. I felt like I was looking into a blizzard and I was terrified of sliding through a stoplight or spinning out while turning the corner. Seeing my anxiety, Dustan offered to drive me to work and be late for class, and even though I didn't want him to miss class, I am grateful that he would be so sweet and willing to drive me to work for the second time today. Oh, and I didn't mind being stuck in the car with him for another twenty-minutes-both-ways, either.
