Some days start off great, and yet, as they continue it becomes evident that it was all a rouse, and they have only arrived to deliver havoc. Needless to say, today is one of those days. When looking at these three pictures, the scene is quite calm, and in my opinion, gorgeous.

The storm is upon us and most of the United States, but here is how it looked before it landed.
