    So I made it in to work.

    Observation/commentary: People who don't know how to drive in the snow should NOT drive in the snow.

    We got 8" of light, dry snow. Governor Cuomo flipped his empire state **** and closed I87, I84 and the LIE all night. I've never seen such a profound overreaction to a routine moderate snowstorm in my life.

    Panic.

    Happy New Year y'all! A cold start to the year here in Austin...lows in the 30's with occasional dips into the 20's. Highs in the 40's. No precipitation. I've done more "cold weather" riding than ever before...most of my December rides were wearing pretty much all the cycling outer layers I could find. My cut-off temp is 45-degrees...so technically a wussy. And @sbxx1985...watching Saban lose for the second time in a month was just icing on the cake.

    The reality is that if you have a quality winter tire like Blizzaks, it's really not so hard. 98% of people seem to think 'all season tires' actually work in the snow. That's nonsense of course. They usually find out the hard way.

    I've been in VA on a couple of occasions when it was actively snowing (<2" total accumulation). There seemed to be two groups of thought among the VA drivers: 1) don't adjust driving style at all (and end up in the ditch) 2) overreact and crawl at a maddeningly slow pace. Then again, I would be remiss to not point out that a lot of drivers in MN are similarly vexed by the first snowfall of the year.

    At least I'm getting a workout today. Taking a break from the shoveling to warm the toes back up.

    Yeah, probably, but I still don't understand why so many people need reminding that they have to adjust their driving to the conditions.

    Yes - very much; not unpredictably, though, he gushed over the updated pic of the grandson even more.

    I'm stuck hitting 'Send/Receive' on my email, waiting to get word back from a CL guy selling what looks to be a nice set of wooden hand planes (jack, jointer, smoother, maybe?) and a combo plane for a song.

    So far this winter, I have gone to an all snow shovel plan. I fired up the snow blower to make sure that it ran, took one test swipe to assure functionality, and parked it. It takes me 32 minutes to shovel (based upon 4 data points + or - 2 minutes). I am figuring that counts as "upper body work" on those days.

    I am thinking my next bike should be a WSD, but in the largest size available.

    Do they even make a 62-64cm WSD bike??
