Remember all that snow we had?

I figured I'd post some "after melting" pics for comparison. Here's what it looked like when I THOUGHT the snow was done:



Here's what it looked like when the snow was finally done falling and blowing around:



And here's what it's like after almost all of the snow is gone:

You call that snow?! We got over a foot here a couple weeks ago, and then another foot a couple days after. Long story short the snowbank is like 2 feet over my head. We actually had to shovel snow off the snowbank we were shoveling onto about 3 times to clear my driveway. In closing I am very jealous, especially since I am putting a downpayment on a bike tomorrow.

You're many miles south of me, too.

Just another reason I'm glad that I don't live any farther north than I already do.

I can't wait to move somewhere more south so I can use a bike all the time as opposed to like...4 months.

It's not the snow that bothers me. What I hate is the 1/4" layer of salt/sand all over the place. It's like riding on a gravel road until we get a good hard rain or two. At least when there's snow on the ground you know you can't go ride. Sitting here when it's 60 degrees outside with a wet sloppy salt/sand mix all over everything is what truly sucks.

I used to live in IA. They dont use hardly any salt compared to MI. The only time they use sand is when its too cold for the salt to melt the ice.
