I know the snow Tuesday morning created some traffic hassles and reminded us that winter weather takes extra time, but man, it sure makes Boise beautiful. 

This was from my drive into work this morning, heading south on Ten Mile Rd in Meridian.  It's not that our area is normally ugly, but the fields being covered and the streets (clear for driving but) lined with snow are certainly beautiful.

There's just something perfect about how our region looks with snow-capped mountains and some extra white topping around the neighborhood.  It really does make it feel like Christmastime, and after living in areas that don't have this same impact, I realized how much I love it.
