My usual 15 minute commute turned into 45 minutes this morning.

Brakes still worked, surprisingly enough.

I store my bikes indoors, so all this is just from the ride this morning.

we don't get much snow around where I live either.
Temperatures all this week have risen to the mid eighties.
something resembling Florida winter weather is supposed to arrive this weekend.

I'd been hoping to make it to after the first before having to put on the studded tires.

Snow this morning, freezing rain forecast for the ride home. The studs went on this morning.

I'd have to double-check, but I think after Christmas is a record anyway.
