Yesterday I did some riding through the snow. We have had single digit temperatures for awhile so the snow was white and squeeky and now there is some fresh stuff on top. The snow was brought to us by the convergence of that arctic air that has been freezing my nose hairs and some warm, moist air from the South Pacific. By this afternoon the temperatures will be up above freezing. This is the scenario I fear most. Above freezing during the day and below at night. Snow turns to slush, slush turns to impassable seas of ice that look like they were applied with the machine that makes "popcorn ceilings".
I may look back on yesterday as the last good day of riding for a while.
