    Sorry I jinxed those near me...

    But, I'd had enough and took off the studded tires before yesterday's ride. I know I've guaranteed at least one more snow storm, but the smooth hum of the tires without the clicking of the studs was a welcome sound.

    Define "near" so I can know if I can blame you if we get more of the white stuff.

    It's only the end of February. We'll be getting at least 2 or 3 more snowstorms whether you take the studded tires off or not.

    I switched my tires/wheels out a couple weeks ago. Have had snow and cold in Nebraska ever since.

    You've got to learn restraint, and how to use your powers for good.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

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

    Would you believe we had a snow storm in the Mesa/ Scottsdale area yesterday. Some areas had several inches of the stuff. I actually slipped a tire on the car going through the stuff. I was pretty exciting stuff for this area. Tomorrow it's going to be 75 degrees, so go figure.
