Well, we lucked out with no snow so far today. Although the temperature has actually dropped since I got up this morning to start cooking breakfast. At 5 am it was 33 degrees and by sunrise it had dropped to almost 30. It is going to be a cool day. Unlike yesterday which reached 54, I think it will stay much cooler and more breezy. We are expecting much colder temperatures tonight.
Even though I was never a fan of waking up before the sun, cooking breakfast is one of the favorite parts of my managing day. I enjoy the quiet "me time" and starting the day with some news. And the gorgeous sunrises I usually miss are an added bonus!
