Hit an ice patch this morning!

Good thing I wasn't on the bike, I would have gone DOWN!

24 degrees here, which is fine if I lived in Michigan, but this da Souf! It doesn't get that cold here!

We get a lot of snow, but the streets are clear after a day. The problem is the wind blows the snow from the side onto the road and freezes. They're called Ground Blizzards, and they can be heck for motorcyclists and other vehicles.

This morning, it was -1. -15 with the wind chill.

It's going to stay cold until Saturday (if you call 40 "not cold"). Right now, it's snowing.
