Winter strom watch – yippee!

Normally I cycle to the bus stop and ride the bus into the city. If there is a winter storm, the city trafic grinds to a halt and it takes 3+ hours on the bus.

Well they're callng for a mid day sleet/snow storm tomorrow. I’m going to drive to the edge of the city, and cycle from there. Then, in the afternoon, I’ll zip right past the gridlock. It's never crowded on the bike path.

This should be fun!

We got mostly rain - just icy trees.
I was the only one who was disappointed. I guess I'm demented.

Apparently Ontario will get anywhere between 8-12in (200~300mm) of snow throughout sunday...

I plan to hit the trails on my snow bike tomorrow :-D
