Was about to reply..."as opposed to a non-wild bear". You got me before I could be a wise-axx.

Love the "rear-view" mirror. Definitely a gender-specific condition.

I've seen wild bears on bike rides before, but they were black with brown nose (snout?) area . . . certainly never seen any yellow bears around here!

I would think that there, 1 to 3inches would be classified as dew...(not even heavy dew)

Yeah. Around here, 6 inches is a light dusting, unless of course you pay attention to the local media. Then, 2 cm is a catastrophe.
