Oh Gawd It's SNOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally it is snowing. I got to try out a new wind shirt from Nike, it is for runners has like tent no-see-um screening for venting, pulled it over a nike dry fit long sleve shirt the perl isumi amfib pants, and I was one toasty commuter! 3 inches of snow, fogged up glasses, ugh the pain.
This is so Cool SNOW!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, i'm in Boston (Jamaica Plain/Roxbury). They're calling for 6 to 10 with a changing forecast. Some of my coworkers heard 10 to 14. Whatever man, anything over 3" is approximately awesome in my book.

I'm just a complete sucker for inclement weather. I'm like a little kid that way.

My new Burley jacket I got earlier today is about to get it's first test. Looks like there's 2-3" already. Wonder how it will be by morning?

THANK YOU!!!It looks really nice for the ride home, although they are calling for blowing. I lost part of the trail on the way to work, as my glasses were too foggy to see through, and the snow was hitting my eyes. I'm hoping the ride home will be a blast as well. Took me 1:29:07 to get to work that lately has taken 1:10, for 14.87 miles.
I'm still feeling the "high."

I finally got out tonight and got to "play" for a while too!!! I must agree it's about time. Still snowing really nice now. Found out the studded tires really do work. Hit ice under the snow but I didnt go down! Sure was fun! Might actually have to get up early on a Saturday morning and ride before getting the snowblower out!

I love reading new snow riding experiences. This is my first winter too. It's a heck of a lot of fun.

Studded tires are great on ice!

GAH SNOW!!

I need to pick up my beater bike from my parent's house, a 2 hour car ride away. I finally get a free weekend to go get it and fix it up, (broken crank arm) but we are supposed to get so much snow and ice that i don't really want to be out driving in the stuff. This isn't fair!! I want to ride!!
