No real problems for me. I left the house at 6am got to work by 6:12am. The worse of the storm is South of Denver. The snow is heavy. Its always interesting though cause you can tell a native from a non-native.
No offense S.dex. You know you got my love.

Don't you work like three blocks away from your apt?

(and for what it's worth, I'm not too bothered by it. It's not like I haven't lived in snow-areas before)

Shouldn't this be in the Commuter forum?

Riding in snow can be fun, but sliding cagers kinda makes it dangerous.

I thought about posting it in the commuter forum, but eh, didn't think it was on-topic enough. Shrug.
