After reading the weather forecast last night I fully expected to see some snow on the ground when I got up. I got up at 4:00 a.m., and it hadn’t even started snowing yet.
By the time I was heading out the door at 5:15 or so the snow was coming down. I rode to the YMCA and got in a small amount of exercise before heading to work. There was some snow on the ground by then. I was surprised that my bike was one of four in the parking garage when I was leaving. Notice the XtraCycle on the far-right.
During the day we got a couple of inches of snow. The main roads were kept clear and the warm-ish temperatures meant that nothing iced up (on the roads I was on).
My commute home was pretty uneventful, but the dogs seemed happy to play in the snow when I got home.
Notice all of the "luggage" on the bike. Commuting and a stop at the Y means I get to carry more stuff. There is a thermos for coffee buried in there to cut back on the expense of the coffee shop.
Now that I’m home, I need to get to sleep so I can get up at 4:00 a.m. again, but I’m not sleepy. I’m considering walking to go out to dinner. I’ll overeat, but a full belly might be what I need to sleep well tonight.
