I have to say that I am probably one of the very few people on this planet that LOVES their job. I adore my work every single day; I love to go during my regular shifts and I love to work overtime. I am a work-aholic, but who wouldn't love their job when you get to do things like take minors up to placement in Tahoe. Awesome.
It was an absolutely fantastic drive, even if I did have to wear my duty belt in the car for 6 hours. It was a beautiful day, even when it was snowing, and the minor we had in the car was pleasant to transport.
I used to live in the mountains, and I would gladly live there again if Daddy did not have such an aversion to snow. I do not particularly like to be out in the snow myself, but there is something so cozy about having your house surrounded in white for a few months out of the year; it is so peaceful and lovely.
I only managed to get a few pictures, since I was supposed to be a professional on-duty officer, but I snapped a few when I could not stand it anymore! I took these on my iPhone, which the driver on the transport said I was crazy to bring, but he was later thankful for the GPS when we got lost :)
