Yesterday morning I woke up to 4" of snow on the ground with a whole lot more coming. I took the bus.

This is my second winter of commuting. I learned a lot during my first winter. It's good to knowing which roads get plowed quickly and which ones only get done a day or two later. My shortest winter route is only 1km longer then my shortest summer route.

Deep snow, blowing snow or freezing rain are no fun to ride in for a 13km one way commute. (And I regularly ride in rain all the time.) I no longer ride during a storm or if there's a significant one forecasted for the ride home.
