Hope that you have been preparing for the snow, by dragging a few tires behind you all summer!

Yikes!

And I thought New England weather tested one's dedication!

Basically, I'll have these conditions in about 45 days, but right now it's perfect Indian Summer!

When I was a dedicated runner, I ran all (Chicago) winter long. At -30F you get some interesting sweat and breath icicles. Just cover all skin and you're fine. Colder than -20F you probably need goggles too. And don't forget extra shielding for the boys.
