Then this afternoon, after I got home from work, the biggest snowflakes ever began falling.

I felt awful all week until the weekend! I didn't start eating solid foods again til Thursday night and my stomach has been weird since I got sick on Sunday last week. Hopefully it is all better now though. Yesterday was OK and while I did feel pretty yucky running, it was bearable. Sometimes you just have to ride it out.
