Goodbye again.

Gotcha!

Just for a few hours, I'm off on my bike to head out to the gym. Weather report in Metro Detroit, clear starry skies, 22 degrees. A light dusting of snow on the ground. Winter is here.

5. Snow tires? Oh, yeah, we've got some snow tires!

I've got a Surly snow bike.

It's a very interesting ride. A really different feel to it, actually slow on pavement, too much resistance, we had just enough snow to leave most of the paths covered, it shines on snow, turf, or gravel/sand/dirt. Especially snow, tires are almost 4 inches wide with deep tread, glides through snow.

10. Merry Christmas. Glad you made the decision to stay. I admire anybody that would go to the gym

in the snow. If it sprinkles, I stay home

11. Thanks. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

It was a pretty cold miserable slog, though. Next time I'll probably drive the Chevy instead.
