    More snow

    So the rain/mix turned out to be an overnight 1-2" by me. Ugh. I'm tired of the snow.

    We had a couple inches at my house in Woodinville. I bailed out of my bike commute this morning and took the car to work. After driving on the roads around my house, decided that I made the right call. It would have been dicey.

    I hope it's gone by wednesday which will be my next commute day.

    Well, with it being high 30's and sunny up here, I'll take this as my sign to be grateful and go for a ride today.

    I rode in today from the East Side.

    Streets are wet; shoulders were snowy/slushy. Neighborhood streets were slushy but main streets just wet.

    The I90 bike path was 99% clear. The I90 bike path *west* of the Mt. Baker tunnel was a mess! I'm finding out that on snowy/slushy days that portion of the bike lane always gets it the worst - I guess that moisture/snow dumps out on the Mt. Baker neighborhood hills (it's snowy, the east side is clear.

    I took my regular commuter but that was a mistake; I should have taken my Stumpjumper with fatter tires. Stumpjumper is able to ride in slushy shoulders w/no problem.

    Bussed it. Snow predicted this afternoon stopped me. My commuter can go as wide as 28s.

    Drove in, the snow/cold rain isn't for me. Second half of the week has a decent looking forecast though.

    I rode from Renton to Redmond this morning.

    Renton was pretty good at 5:30. Temps were around 35 and, while it was raining, it wasn't snow. I rode up through Renton and up Lake Washington Blvd. past the Seahawks HQ and it was all fine. It wasn't until I got to the top of the KennyDale Hill that I ran into any snow at all. Things got a bit stickier as I rode on up the Factoria Hill, through Bellevue CC, and up Lake Hills to 116th. It was pretty snowy all the way into campus. All-in-all, though, it only took me 10-15 min. longer than usual.

    It's looking pretty good for the ride home. Tomorrow is another day!

    The weather right now is great, and I'm regretting not having just taken the utility beater in this morning.

    If it snows again tonight, I'm taking the beater and just riding the brakes all the way down Novelty Hill.

    The snow is heading this way tonight and tomorrow. It remains to be seen how much we get. I am hoping most of it already dumped on you guys.

    It just started in earnest up here on Redmond Ridge. If this keeps up all night, there could be 2 - 3 inches by morning.

    After getting 116+ good, hard miles in last week (no commute options for me) and not seeing any snow for 5 weeks I was really disappointed to see the wall of white coming from the west this afternoon. Now, it's coming straight down with no signs of letting up. What a bummer - time for the indoor trainer again.

    I rode home in the snow tonight. It is still snowing out there. I don't know how much of a mess I will have in the morning, but I will peek outside when I get up and survey the sloppy stuff.

    Ah! snow! finally after a really crappy January I can go ski again. Had a few nice bike rides while waiting for the snow but now's the time to enjoy my other passion.

    We've got like 4" of slush right now. One school district in the county has gone for 2 hr delay, waiting to see what ours does.

    The snow melted off yesterday around the eastside, even up at my elevation; but Holy Black-Ice, Batman! I drove this morning after listening to the news and hearing about all the spinout accidents going on. It sucks, but it was safer to drive and just take it slow than to chance becoming a human pylon in this morning's game of "rush-hour bumper cars on ice".

    I wimped out yesterday, rode today. A little black ice this morning for me but not too bad. Beautiful crossing of I90 - Mt. Rainier was out, sun was rising, moon was still up in the west. Great morning.

    It IS a lovely morning!

    I didn't want to wear sunglasses, so I could absorb more of that bright natural light.
