    Although it was in the 20s today, the roads were clear and dry. I took my three-seasons commuter with the road tires on my winter loop to work. Came home the same way. Nice waning moon over my shoulder.

    Tomorrow, since I don't need the panniers, I think I'll take the Litespeed. Snow returns on Wednesday, so it'll be back to the studs.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Thats what they said on the news but weather.com is saying 36° with rain on Wenesday with snow on Saturday and Sunday. I'm just hoping for one more rideable day this week.

    Perhaps in NYC, but here Upstate? Snow and a high of 27 on Wednesday.

    Yeah but you will get rain until mid March. So there!
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I hope you and weather.com are right. My (usually, somtimes?) reliable source has Wednesday opening with rain and changing to freezing rain and ice as the temp drops through the day. Of course this may be a question of where the rain/ice line is. I'm in lower Westchester, so am usually a few degrees cooler.

    "Clear and dry"??? This is my bike at about 8am 16 miles out from work and 2 miles from a hot shower

    I watch the local weather and expect the opposite of whatever they say. If they are predicting a lot of snow (4-6" tonight, which isn't exactly a lot for northwestern PA, but...) then I expect to have a dusting. When they predict 1-2, it seems that is when we get 6+.

    Last week they predicted 1-2". I cleaned 6 inches off the cars, went back out a few hours later, cleaned another 4 inches off and ran the snow blower, and in the morning cleared off another 3 inches from the car to go to work.

    Yes, but rain in 77° is just fine.

    woo finally some steady mid-upper 50's are coming later this week!

    Picked up a pair of these at Sportsman's Warehouse on Saturday to hopefully keep my feet from freezing on cold morning commutes. I got the XL which says works for size 13, but they still seem VERY hard to get on/off past the heels of my feet. We'll see. 25 bucks, and if my feet still freeze on my next morning commute I'm taking 'em back.

    YOU may be getting 50's, but over here it will be rain/snow/other various forms of precipitation from this afternoon until Thursday night.
