A Few Changes.

I moved here from Madison, Wisconsin at the beginning of September and after living in Northern Virginia for a month and a half, I am happy to report that I love it!  Most recently, I am thrilled to be here because it has not snowed yet.  For the first time in my life I did not have to grumble about the first snow fall occurring in early October.  I expect to enjoy an appropriate amount of all four seasons which will be a much welcomed change in my life.  Another big change is the amount of time it takes me to drive 5 miles; that change is not as welcome.  I heeded many warnings about the traffic here, so I was actually expecting much worse.  I have stocked my car with good music and a reliable GPS, so even though it often takes me 30 minutes to drive 5 miles, it could be worse.  In my mind, the joy I will receive from a shorter, milder winter far outweighs all of the time I have been spending in my car these days.
