We were hit with a surprise dump of snow several days ago, which made for some interesting and challenging cycling.
When I woke up at 5:30, it had just started to snow. The weather forecast had called for up to 2 cm (about 1″) of snow – no big deal. However, when I left the house at 7:30, there was almost 25 cm (10″).
The flakes were huge, traffic was at a standstill when the cars weren’t sliding into one another, and cyclists were slowly but surely moving along much faster than the other traffic.
I strapped my little digital camera to my bike and slapped together the following cheesy little video of the day’s bike ride to work.
