I'm sure that those people who are not local, have no idea of why you might have gone down today. The Twin Cities were blanketed with a thick coat of ice, last night. I thought that I was fortunate to make it to my garage, without falling. Biking was no trouble, as long as one proceded with exrteem caution. Turning was a generally bad idea.

I fishtailed once (hit a block of concrete) and slipped 6-8 inches taking off a couple of times. No worries. I was taking it really careful, though.

Ice?? Doesn't that stuff melt once you take it out of the freezer? Sunny and mid 70's here. Parents are in from Des Moines, and are enjoying the weather right now.

Freezer? Don't you just keep your food/ice cubes in the snowbank outside for storage!?

In the summer, I have to move my frozen food to the shady side of the igloo so it doesn't thaw.

oh ya... thread related content: the streets were very icy here in Saskatoon last night as well, topped with snow drifts... a couple of slips, but didn't go down (phew!)

This morning it was 30 degrees warmer in my freezer than it was outside. A balmy -5 F outside.
