Snowmagedden Plus Three

this looks bad but won't take long to disappear
 Last Thursdays snow storm was something beautiful. Yes, I know people got hurt in the traffic chaos that ensued I was quite enamored with the sheer amount of snow that was falling, and in such a short time. I had the bike packed for a ride after work but didn't go as the roads into town were at a standstill. 

Today's ride was my first foray into the river valley since the storm and as expected only the plowed trails were runnable.  I was smart today and made sure I had all I needed before I left, I even checked my tires! The ride from the Queen to the Parliament and up around town, across the High Level and back via the SouthSide of the valley.

Frozen Feet

Not too sure how many cultures deal with freezing feet and the pain that happens when they start warming up. I thought I was going to die on...
