first snowstorm of the season, just ahead of the winter solstice and in time for christmas!

woke up this morning to a blanket of 6+ inches of snow. considering the 10+ inches that fell on the city - and twice that on long island and new jersey - we just got a dusting! still, it took a decent chunk of time to shovel - and another chunk to dig out our cars. so not going to feel too guilty about the huge breakfast i'm about to make in a few minutes.

on the down side, not going to make the holiday 5k in fairfield this morning. too much of a hassle to make the drive in these conditions. very glad that emmy, rob, and i made it up to norfolk for the 10 miler yesterday. we lucked out and didn't catch sight of any snow until the first few flakes found us as when we were practically home!

since most of my running routes are still covered in snow, have to figure out the best way to get in some mileage today. going to lace up my trail shoes and slog through snow later today. but the question is for how many miles? will worry about that after some breakfast :D
