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.

They have bicycle tires with studs? -internet search brings up lots of studded tires -
Who knew? All you snow people knew. I don't want to ride if it is below 55 degrees. That's how wimpy I am. brrr

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.

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.

Call Al Gore and ask him what happened to his "Global Warming" B.S.
