Not the best riding weather

Man this is going to be a long winter. Last week we didn't get above freezing all week. This week started off the same but warmed up into the 60s yesterday and was in the 50s last night. BUT things are going downhill fast! A winter storm is moving in and we are now expecting up to 8" of snow and ice on top of that by Saturday morning.

Something tells me I might be taking the car to work.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Unhappy

We have been OK up until today, & it went from 68'f yesterday to 28'f today!!

That's a 50' drop in less than 24 hours.......but, I do like the snow, & coming from England, we usually wrap our 'bikes up around the end of October until early March, so I get an extra month of riding on each end.

Warm and rainy here in NYC, but yesterday was the big leaf fall, and today with the rain it is absolutely treacherous out there. Worst part is when I'm parking- Had my foot slide out like it was on teflon. Not good...

For what it's worth, large parts of Texas aren't much better. High in San Antonio today is supposed to be around 35 F with lows in the high 20s and freezing rain. We can expect a lot of fender-benders around town in the next few days. Ice? What's ice got to do with driving?
