November was already plenty cold. December hasn't been too bad yet, but yeah, I'm kinda bracing myself for January and February.

Here in the NYC area, January is always the coldest month. February is often snowier and slightly warmer, and it's also when people get really sick of winter.

I'm building up a good tolerance for low temperatures, but I don't like to ride when the road is slippery, so I hope for a minimum of frozen precipitation.
