    I didn't make it this morning.

    Today was the first morning with real snow (about 10 cm or 3.5 inches) over a few millimeters of black ice so it was very slippery. I had to lower the tire pressure a lot so the studs made good contact with the road. The handling was perfect and I was having a lot of fun.

    The problem was the speed, reaching a very fast 14-15 kmh with a 10 kmh tail wind. I would've needed 2 1/2 hour to get to work so I just went around the block a few time having fun in the snow and then took the minivan

    The roads should be cleared by tomorrow.
