Should I ride in or drive in?

I bike regardless, but then again, I commuted year round in Boston for almost 10 years. So, I'm one of those nut jobs. My tips for this kind of weather are as follows: Rain pants, rain jacket, googles (preferably), and if you have to, do sidewalks. Seriously. I've never used studded tires, and actually, while I am stud-curious, I've never actually felt the need to get them, and still got around just fine. But then again I have a much higher tolerance for risk, so, you know. Everyone's mileage varies.

There's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad clothing.
