Did Pete commute in the snow today?

Everyone, Greg?

Yes, I commuted in the snow.

But if had commuted by bike, it wouldn't have taken 2 hours!

(I might have been warm, too!)

hey, I could have, you know!

No, too much chance of black ice (and white ice, grey ice...)

Hey, Mike, I did go for a spin around the block, just to try it. The traction was great, even in my skinny 28c tires! I guess it would have been tougher once the snow got up to my bottom bracket, but that won't happen around here.

Here's a pic, just to prove we actually had snow:
