Things always seem better in the morning, at least that's how I feel. This is the view from our little balcony porch this Sunday morning (which I cleaned at least three times between Friday and Saturday afternoon, when the snow finally stopped). The moon was full and the capitol building can be seen across the river, in the distance.

I was a worry wart the entire day Friday, watching local, live news cams driving around the city. Our interstates can be treacherous, winding through and around our hills, and three major roads (I-64, I-77, and I-79) intersect here. Wrecks and car fires (people trying to gun their way through the snow) were common on all three major roads. Hundreds of tractor trailers were backed up as the major interstates were closed for highway crews to safely plow. My RN daughter has worked the entire weekend, sharing a hotel room with fellow nurses the past two nights, while her fire chief husband was called out to duty from his normal day off. I respect their work ethic immensely.
I finally distracted myself awhile late Friday afternoon by baking cookies. These are Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies.
