Not till tomorrow late. I'll take the T on Thursday if the roads aren't clear. I've been on the T 3 times this winter.

I could probably get tired of this. It's bad enough that our temperatures are right at the freezing mark so we keep getting snow up in the mountains. Which is keeping the gravel roads up there covered in ice.

I will try it tomorrow but it will be windy too. It was a tough commute back home last night so I drove in today as my knees needed a break for recovery.

we won't take any of the snow here in Pa so you can have more, deal? Storm is 50 miles south of us trying to decide if it should slip by without making a mess.

Hey - I just switched to summer tires, took the XC bike out for a 40km run today and don't expect to be back till Thursday! Hopefully the guys at the border will do their thing and turn the storm back at the border! I know we have a free trade agreement and all that but ....... there isn't much demand in Canada for snowstorms this time of year

When we get snowstorms I usually take the bus. If street clearing was a little better (...just a little and if people didn't snow blow their driveways into the street...) I would be back on the road much faster. It usually takes from 1-3 days before I get back at it... depending on the snowfall.
