Gave up this morning

We got about 6" of the wettest, heaviest, slushiest snow I think I can remember in a long time last night. I tried riding on it this morning, and even with my Nokian Extreme 294, I found it was just too unstable. It just squirmed everywhere under my tires. Had it been 5 degrees colder and it was more frozen, I'm sure it wouldn't have been a big deal, but there was just nothing firm for the tires to grab. Took the cage to work.

Oh, and the roads hadn't been cleared yet. So, had they been cleared I'm sure I could have made it just fine. It was just the deep, wet, slushy snow in the streets was too much for me.
